North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN
The North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is a crown agency that reports to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. It is one of 14 local entities designed to plan, integrate and fund local health services, including hospitals, community care access centres, community health centres, long-term care homes, mental health and addiction programs and a variety of community support services agencies within specific geographic areas. North Simcoe Muskoka residents have benefited from numerous programs funded by the LHIN. Improved wait times in emergency rooms, expanded care for seniors in a variety of settings and the implementation of residential hospice beds are just a few of the initiatives that have seen our residents receive quality and timely care close to home.
