Central West LHIN Sub-Regions
The Central West LHIN has divided its region into five planning areas known as sub-regions, providing a foundation for the development of local integrated systems to ensure residents receive better health outcomes.
Sub-regions are smaller geographic planning areas designed to help LHINs better understand and address patient needs at the local level. By looking at care patterns through a smaller lens, system planners will be able to better identify and respond to community needs and be able to ensure that patients across the entire LHIN will have access to the care they need, when and where they need it. Sub-regions:
- Enable a more focused approach to assessing the distinct health needs and service capacity of local communities
- Help to better identify health disparities across the province as well as determining whether health care services are meeting the needs of the population
- Help identify local factors that prevent our health system from improving
- Allow the community and providers to engage in a way that is focused on local circumstances and issues.
In formalizing its sub-regions, which map to pre-existing Health Links geographies, the LHIN used the best available evidence to ensure they align with local needs.
