Welcome to Louise's NE LHIN Blog


Welcome to Louise Paquette's blog! It’s a great way for us to have a conversation about local health, your access to care, and your local health services.

Through my words and the photos here, I want to update you on my role and activities as CEO of the NE LHIN, and what our staff team is doing to make your health system more patient-focused in Northeastern Ontario.

Most importantly, this blog is interactive because I want you, my fellow Northerners, to share your comments and feedback with me.

Please read my current and previous blog posts, and let me know your thoughts to help make our health care system stronger in Northeastern Ontario. You can comment by e-mail at engagingwithyou@lhins.on.ca, or by phone at 1-866-906-5446.
