The Ontario Ministry of Health announced today that Local Health Integration Networks, or LHINs, will be called Home and Community Care Support Services (HCCSS) as of April 1, 2021. This new business name does not change the services that have been provided through the LHINs for clients and families or the way those services are accessed. It also is not expected to change any contacts for our clients and families. This name change reflects the specific focus for Home and Community Care Support Services going forward and is related to the transition under way in the province to make care more integrated through Ontario Health Teams.
