Champlain LHIN Mental Health/Addictions Study

lhin

As Chair of the Board of Health, I am happy to share that the Champlain LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) and hospital partners have conducted a study on how to improve inpatient mental health and addictions services in the region.

The study produces a plan examining how best to use current bed capacity and dollars in the most effective, high-quality, and efficient way while providing clarity as to the roles and responsibilities of hospitals with mental-health and addictions services.

The 13 recommendations involve changes to several key areas—leadership, governance and culture; equity and access; patient flow; service delivery, and health human resources.

More information on the plan as well as other Champlain LHIN updates is available on their website here.
