Integrated Health Service Plan 2019-2022

When it comes to health care, Northerners are passionate and have a lot to say, and that’s a good thing because we as a Local Health Integration Network have been eager to listen, learn, and respond to what people need to live healthy and well in Northeastern Ontario.

Thousands of people contributed to this plan through over 1,040 survey responses, 60 engagements, and thousands of ideas received. This plan includes the voices of Northerners and what is needed to build a stronger system of care that focuses on the needs of the diverse people living here.  We partnered with the Réseau du mieux-être francophone du Nord de l'Ontario to engage with Francophone Northerners. We met with our Local Aboriginal Health Committee and followed its guidance to ensure this plan complimented the North East LHIN’s Aboriginal Health Care Reconciliation Action Plan. 

This plan will guide our LHIN work over the next three years and identifies priorities under the categories of: SYSTEM INTEGRATION, HOME AND COMMUNITY CARE, and MENTAL HEALTH AND ADDICTIONS.
