About the South East LHIN
The South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is one of 14 networks established by the province to plan, manage, and fund the health care system at the local and regional level. Promoting integration and networking among our health care resources is already showing results. The South East region extends from Brighton on the west to Prescott and Cardinal on the east, north to Perth and Smith Falls, and back to Bancroft. This map is for funding and planning purposes only: residents of the LHIN can seek health care services wherever they prefer, inside or outside these boundaries.
