Ontario is taking the next steps in its plan to better integrate the province’s health care system to help end hallway health care. To support this, the Toronto Central LHIN, which is also the Toronto region, is working cohesively with four other regions in the province to help patients get the care they need locally or across Ontario.
You will continue to have access to the care you need and the health care providers you have built relationships with.
Home care continues as before and there are no changes to long-term care home placement.
Our patient services and contacts will remain unchanged until further notice.
For more information, please contact us at 310-2222. Our home and community care services can continue to be accessed by calling 1-866-243-0061.
For more information about how Ontario is improving the health care system, visit ontario.ca/connectedcare or contact Service Ontario Health INFOline at 1-866-532-3161 (TTY 1-800-387-5559).

About Home and Community Care Support Services
Home and Community Care Support Services (formerly known as Local Health Integration Networks) has a focused mandate to deliver local health care services such as home care, access to community services and long-term care home placement. These agencies previously had additional responsibilities for local health system funding and management, but these functions were transferred to and assumed by Ontario Health on April 1, 2021.
Home and Community Care Support Services is dedicated to ensuring the ongoing delivery of local services while Ontario makes changes to improve the health care system to give patients better connected care with health care providers working as one coordinated team in Ontario Health Teams.
Although these agencies are operating under new business names, services and contact information remain the same, including home and community care, long-term care home placement and help finding services and local doctors.
