Hospital Funding in Ontario - A Quick Overview
The main source of hospital funding is government funding, which flows from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to the Local Health Integration Networks. The LHIN's are responsible for planning health services and overseeing the integration and coordination of local health services to make it easier for clients/patients to access the care they need. Red Lake is located within the Northwest Health LHIN 14.
Provincial funding covers approximately 75% of the operating costs for hospitals. Other sources of revenue include revenue-generating activities, other government sources (e.g. Federal funding, inter-provincial healthcare, WSIB and private, etc.), grants and charitable donations.
