Our Health Service ProvidersOutcomes versus Outputs

The HNHB LHIN funds 188 providers that together provide more than 230 health programs and services. These programs and services include community support services, mental health and addictions services, community health centres, long term care homes, and hospitals. The LHIN also delivers and coordinates home and community care services (click here to learn more). There are other private, not-for-profit services and non-LHIN funded programs also providing services in the health system.


Each health service provider has their own board of directors (or something similar) who are responsible for ensuring accessible, responsive, and quality services for residents in their communities. The HNHB LHIN's role is to ensure the services provided are aligned with the priorities identified by the community (and described in our Integrated Health Service Plan). In turn, these priorities work together to make the health system better.


Each health service provider signs an accountability agreement with the HNHB LHIN that describes the services that they provide, how much of each service, and most importantly to what outcome. Over time, as our health service providers move towards these outcomes, the whole system will come together for better health outcomes for residents!
