Reports/Rapports : Integrating Innovative Ideas: Small Rural Hospital Summit

Source: North East Local Health Integration Network.
"Approximately 40% of the population in Northeastern Ontario lives in rural communities and they are served by 21 small hospitals. In planning and delivering services, staff and directors of these hospitals must respond to the wide range of cultural and unique geographical challenges of the region."

"Integrating Innovative Ideas: Small Rural Hospital Summit was organized to provide representatives of the small rural hospitals an opportunity to identify some of the issues and concerns they face in meeting the needs of their communities, and to develop innovative solutions to meet those needs. Representatives of the NE LHIN (North East Local Health Integration Network), as well as the NE CCAC (North East Community Care Access Centre), and NEMHC (Northeast Mental Health Centre), also attended the Summit. In addition to having an opportunity to network with each other, it was also hoped that participants would generate 100 ideas for actions they could take to improve health care across the region."
