The South West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is one of 14 local organizations in Ontario that plan, coordinate and fund local health services and deliver high quality home and community care to patients and families. The South West LHIN is committed to health improvement, innovation, and the establishment of collaborative partnerships to improve population health, patient experience and value for money across the health care system 

LHIN staff incorporates the best aspects of teamwork and continuous learning as they work with the local community to ensure the best health outcomes for everyone. If you have a passion for excellence and an entrepreneurial spirit, this is your opportunity to make a difference as part of a dynamic team transforming the Ontario healthcare system.

The Opportunity

 

A permanent full time Care Coordinator (Registered Nurse) position, with an initial assignment to work in the Complex and Complex Palliative population, is available with the South West LHIN’s Hanover location. The Care Coordinator will be responsible for working in close collaboration with all system partners to provide a team approach to care for this population. The Care Coordinator will support these patients with linkages to the broader health care system with the aim of maintaining the patient’s safety in their own home. Emphasis will be on preventing admission to hospitals or visits to the Emergency Department (ED) and possibly delaying/avoiding admission to Long-Term Care.

Emphasis will be placed on flexibility, excellent relationship management, strong system navigation, and knowledge of the community and available supports. Ability to work as an effective member of an integrated health care team is essential and the Care Coordinator selected must have a strong history of collaboration with community support service agencies in joint service planning. The Care Coordinator will have significant interaction with hospital partners and our CCAC hospital teams, therefore, must have a comfort working within a hospital environment in order to support effective transition of patients from hospital to home. 

 

Interested applicants will have demonstrated a passion for the continuous growth and evolution of community health care and the ability to embrace change. Demonstrated leadership in moving from concept to implementation and enthusiasm for working within new frameworks is a must.
