Province cutting hundreds of administrative jobs at health agencies, LHINs

Reductions occur as soon as the government Ford is working to integrate the territorial departments of public health Ontario, as well as offices, who oversees cancer treatment in Ontario (Cancer Care Ontario), the provision of medical services online (eHealth Ontario) and many others, to create a new institution under the name of "public Health Ontario" (Ontario Health).

None of the job eliminations involve direct patient care, said Travis Kann, director of communications for Elliott.

As part of what some have called the most extensive overhaul of health care services in Ontario since medicare was born, the Tory Government has fired its latest salvo across the bow of what it says is massive duplication of services and positions.

Premier Doug Ford said during last year's election campaign that not a single public-sector job would be lost if his party formed the government.

In total, the province will be eliminating 825 "back-office" positions but the government says nearly half of those jobs are now vacant.

You won't see changes to the health-care services you are receiving at home or in the community as the Ontario government rolls out a phased reorganization of six health agencies and 14 local health integration networks into one super-agency to be known as Ontario Health, said a spokesperson for the network that serves York Region.

Provincewide, more than 400 now vacant back-office positions at LHINs and other health agencies were eliminated.

The Ford government refers to the jobs that are being eliminated as "back-office positions".

"We understand that our plan will impact individuals' lives", Elliott said in a release.

Elliott said the province has asked agencies to avoid filling vacant positions and accept early retirements to "minimize the impact" to current employees.

Kann described the move as a "far better use of taxpayer dollars".

The government said it expects to save up to $250 million this year by eliminating duplicated services.

It is not clear whether new administrative services will be required to coordinate local care and how that will be funded.

The province says their reorganization is bearing fruit, pointing to Cancer Care Ontario, which the Tories say reallocated $1.6 million from back-office savings to fund the positron emission tomography (PET) scan services in Sudbury.

The province has received 150 applications from groups - including a number from Eastern Ontario and Ottawa - for health teams.

There is already evidence of savings being reinvested in frontline care.
