Local Health Integration Network

Created by the Ontario government in March 2006, the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are 14 not-for-profit corporations who work with local health providers and community members to determine the health service priorities of our regions. LHINs plan, integrate and fund local health services within specific geographic areas, including:

  • Hospitals
  • Home and Community Care
  • Community Support Services
  • Long-Term Care
  • Mental Health and Addictions Services
  • Community Health Centres

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare belongs to the North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).

*All home care services and staff from the North Simcoe Muskoka Community Care Access Centre (NSM CCAC) transferred to the NSM Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) on May 3rd, 2017.

This is part of Ontario's Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care which is increasing access to care, reducing wait times and improving the patient experience.  See more information on this.
