On April 1, 2007, LHINs assumed full responsibility for planning, funding and integrating health services. Using a phased approach, the board of the Central East LHIN signs multi year planning and funding Accountability Agreements with each of its providers, defining the obligations and responsibilities of both the providers and the LHIN and forming the basis on which funding is provided.
The charts and links below detail the amount of funding provided by the LHIN to each sector and each health service provider included in that sector.

Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund Guidelines - updated December 10, 2012
Hospitals are responsible for ensuring that their facilities are in a good state of repair by managing their capital assets and planning renewal activities.
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (the ministry) established the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF) in 1999 to assist hospitals in renewing their hospital facilities. The HIRF program was reformed in 2004 to streamline minor (less than $1 million) infrastructure renewal project approvals and to distribute infrastructure renewal funds annually to public hospitals. The HIRF grant is to be used to supplement a hospital’s renewal needs on a priority basis. The program changed in 2007 to reflect the ministry’s new stewardship role, and the establishment of Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs). LHINs advise on the HIRF allocation to hospitals and review and recommend HIRF projects in accordance with ministry guidelines.
In 2012, HIRF was redesigned to integrate with the Facility Condition Assessment Program (FCAP) in order to help prioritize HIRF projects. The FCAP is extremely important in informing hospitals, LHINs and the ministry of the state of infrastructure at each hospital and across the Province. Integrating the FCAP into HIRF assists in determining the highest priority infrastructure projects such that available financial resources may be directed towards these needs.
