There is still work to do and some kinds of healthcare are being done more effectively than others, but progress is being made in this part of Ontario.
The CEO of the Southeast Local Health Integration Network, Paul Huras, commented on the latest performance indicators for all 14 LHINs across the province.
In our region, provincial targets for homecare services being made available to patients are close to being met.
CEO Huras says that’s good.
The Southeast LHIN as a whole still lags behind many other LHINs when it comes to the speed of service in hospital emergency rooms, especially for minor ailments.
CEO Huras says efforts are ongoing to cut the time people are waiting in emergency.
