Sub-Regions were established to help focus on smaller geographic planning regions, in order to better understand and address patient needs at the local level. The five sub-regions within the south east are as follows:

  •  Quinte; 
  •  Rural Hastings; 
  •  Rural Frontenac, Lennox and Addington; 
  •  Kingston; and 
  •  Lanark, Leeds and Grenville.  

It is important to know that this approach does not determine where patients receive their care, or restrict Ontarians as they make decisions about their own health care. These sub-regions were formalized using the best available evidence, including patient referral patterns and feedback gathered from local engagements with patients, providers and the community. Health care service providers, patients, caregivers and their families continue to play a role in planning, priority setting and implementation improvement activities at the local level.
