Physician Engagement - updated November 8, 2010 

To achieve its mission to lead the creation of an integrated sustainable healthcare system that ensures better health, better care, better value for money, the Central East LHIN works with stakeholders from across the Central East region and throughout the province. 

Since its inception, the LHIN has recognized the valuable role that physicians play in the development and implementation of activities that will lead to an integrated and sustainable healthcare system.

Central East physicians have and continue to provide leadership and input to CE LHIN Planning Partner groups such as the Health Professional Advisory Committee, the Primary Care Working Group, the Medical Leadership Group (MLG) which is comprised of Chiefs of Staff from all CE LHIN hospitals and the Strategic Aim Coalitions.   The LHIN meets regularly with the four Medical Officers of Health in the Central East area and physicians act as leads in key clinical areas such as Emergency Departments, Critical Care and Cancer Care.  Physician input and leadership was also essential in the development and now implementation of the LHIN’s Clinical Services Plan.
