Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are not-for-profit organizations whose mandate is to lead new ways of planning, delivering, evaluating and funding health services within 14 specific geographic regions within the Province of Ontario. These agencies are guided by the Health Integration Act, governed by appointed Boards, and report to the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
St. Joseph's Health Centre is situated within the Toronto Central LHIN, which is comprised of two Community Care Access Centres, 18 Community Health Centres, 18 Hospitals, 41 Long-Term Care Facilities, 75 Mental Health Organizations and 103 Community Support Service Agencies. This LHIN has identified nine health care integration and planning priorities which are described in its Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP) in the following order: Mental Health and Addictions, Rehabilitation, Seniors Health, Human Resources, Education and Research, E-Health, Energy and Environment Management, Back Office Integration, and Provincial Ministry Priorities.
The Health Centre is actively involved in the work of the Toronto Central LHIN through our membership in the West End Urban Health Alliance (WEUHA), and their community engagement initiatives.
