I thought I'd write and give you an update on what's been happening at the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).
You may have heard that the Toronto Central LHIN CEO, Barry Monaghan, resigned from the position and his last day was November 9. The search for a new CEO is underway.
As some of you may know, the province's 14 LHINs took over the responsibility for coordinating and allocating funds - including hospital funds - on April 1, 2007. UHN has been very involved in the health care discussion at the LHIN. UHN's own Matt Anderson is the Toronto Central LHIN's e-health lead and Dr. Thomas Stewart, UHN's Director of Critical Care, is the LHIN's Critical Care lead.
The LHIN has also set up a few key councils to advise the board and leadership on implementation of their priorities - UHN is playing an important role on these councils, including:
· Matt Anderson who is co-chair of the E-Health Strategy Council · Dr. Bob Bell, co-chair of the Education and Research Council · Ed Rubinstein, co-chair of the Energy and Environment Management Council · Dr. Ken Fung who sits on the Mental Health and Addictions Council · Dr. Ron Keren who sits on the Seniors Council.
I encourage you to visit the Toronto Central LHIN website, which recently got a facelift, to see what work is underway and to read about the progress the councils are making.
Please feel free to contact me through What You Told Us if you have questions, and I will do my best to answer them.
