The Central West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is taking the lead developing an integrated system of health services that will improve access to services for all residents.
Under the Local Health System Integration Act, the Central West LHIN has the authority to plan, integrate, fund and monitor the local health system for the purpose of improving the health of residents who live in local communities within the LHIN’s geographic boundaries.
The Central West LHIN’s strategic directions are fully aligned with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) priorities and are based on community engagement, data analysis and leading practice research.
In 2010/11 more than 670 individuals were part of Central West LHIN community engagement events.
Engaging local residents and health service providers, and listening to their perspectives about the local health system, takes time and effort. However, these engagements have resulted in a local health system that is better coordinated and able to address the diverse and unique needs of the communities making up the Central West LHIN.
Telephone Town Hall
Calling all members of the community!
Learn more about local health care services during a Telephone Town Hall
On Monday, November 25 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., the Central West Community Care Access Centre, Central West Local Health Integration Network, Headwaters Health Care Centre, Region of Peel Health Services and William Osler Health System will be hosting a ‘Telephone Town Hall’ to connect with people across the region about their health care services.
This is the third time this group has hosted an event like this. The most recent Telephone Town Hall took place in May 2013 and saw over 8,000 households across the region engaged in a conversation about local health care services.
The purpose of the Telephone Town Hall is to help area residents better understand what each organization does and how they work together to provide health services to the community. It will also give residents an opportunity to provide the organizations with feedback around how they might be able to better meet the health needs of patients and their families in this area. Anyone can sign up for the Telephone Town Hall.
We will also randomly select thousands of households across the region and invite them to join the call. If you would like to ensure you are called as part of the Telephone Town Hall, please call 905-494-2120 ext. 50200 or send an email with your telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 22, 2013.
