Service and Ministry Accountability Agreements
Each year, SickKids enters into Service Accountability Agreements with the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (Toronto Central LHIN). The agreements set out SickKids’ responsibilities for ongoing advancement of the health system. Ontario's LHINs are required under the Local Health Services Integration Act, 2006, to negotiate a Service Accountability Agreement for each Health Service Provider they fund.
As a Health Service Provider that cares for patients across the spectrum, from emergency care to mental health services, SickKids is required to complete a Hospital Service Accountability Agreement (H-SAA) and a Multi-Sector Service Accountability Agreement. The H-SAA reflects that to the extent one party succeeds, the other party will also succeed as the parties share a common interest in supporting "...a health-care system that keeps people healthy, gets them good care when they are sick and will be there for our children and grandchildren."
