Mission, Vision and Values
The North East LHIN is focused on your health, your access to care, and your local health services. We’re making your health system more patient-focused in Northeastern Ontario.
In a public and accountable way, we’re helping both patients and health care providers improve local access to health care. The North East LHIN has reduced wait times, reduced ALC congestion, improved the lives of seniors by meeting their health care needs in community and is building a more coordinated local health care system.
As part of a 14-member health network established by the Ontario government, the North East LHIN makes local decisions about regional health care planning and funding. We have a board of fellow Northerners that works to improve local health care.
The NE LHIN is…
- Local and Lean: Local Board makes public decisions in Northeastern Ontario – replacing Toronto-based decision making. Staff work in offices in North Bay, Sudbury, Sault Ste Marie and Timmins.
- Providing more money to front line care: 150 health service providers receive $1.4 billion and are held accountable to delivering patient-focused care.
- Thinking as a System for the North: better access to care through integrations; improved wait times; increased collaboration and transparency among providers.
To strengthen the coordination of health care services and improve access.
