Physician Engagement

To achieve its mission to lead the advancement of an integrated sustainable health care system that ensures better health, better care and better value, the Central East LHIN continues to work 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 Central East LHIN Planning Partner groups such as the Health Professional Advisory Committee, the Primary Health Care Advisory Group, the Medical Leadership Group (MLG) which is comprised of Chiefs of Staff from all Central East LHIN hospitals and the Strategic Aim planning partner teams. 

Dr. Paul Caulford, the Central East LHIN Primary Care Physician Lead, along with local Primary Care Physician Leads in each of the LHIN's seven sub-regions, are actively engaging their colleagues in the ongoing transformation of the health care system.

The LHIN also 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 Primary Care, Mental Health and Addictions, Emergency Departments, Vascular Health, Palliative Care and Critical Care.
