Sub-Region Profiles 

A sub-region is a smaller geographic planning region within the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant LHIN that will help the us better understand and address patient needs at the local level. 

By looking at care patterns through a smaller, more local lens, we will be able to better identify and respond to community needs and ensure that patients across the entire geography have access to the care they need, when and where they need it.  To learn more about sub-regions, click here.
