Ontario bill would overhaul $50 billion health-care system, close CCACs

Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

The Ontario government has introduced legislation that would overhaul the province’s 50-billion-dollar health care system.
The 14 Local Health Integration Networks set up by the Liberals will be given an expanded role, while the Community Care Access Centres created by the previous Tory government will be shut down.
The L-H-I-N’s will be responsible for primary care, home and community care and the government says that will improve and integrate delivery of front-line services.
Health Minister Eric Hoskins says he expects “significant savings” from getting rid of the Community Care Access Centres, and expects most of their front-line staff will move over to the L-H-I-N’s.
