LHIN Collaborative (LHINC) Appoints Executive Director

The Ontario LHIN Collaborative (LHINC) has announcde that Mario Tino has been selected as full-time Executive Director (ED).

Mario Tino has more than twenty years of experience in Ontario’s health sector. For the last nine years he has managed his own consulting firm where his practice has focused on the health sector. Prior to entering the consulting field, Mario was a senior consultant with Ontario’s Health Services Restructuring Commission. Mario has also held progressively senior management positions in Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care where he led several departments and programs. Mario holds a MHSc degree in health administration from the University of Toronto.

Mario will succeed Barry Monaghan who has been acting as our interim leader on a part-time basis. Mario’s start date will be July 13th 2009 and we are all looking forward to him assuming his new role.

Later, we will be thanking Barry more fully for his contributions in the early stages of getting LHINC started and overseeing the initial support activities that LHINC has undertaken. He has recruited an excellent team to initiate the organization and the steering committee is very appreciative of his support.

As we look toward the first council meeting of LHINC in late August it is with anticipation of launching the next wave of collaborative efforts to continually build and improve the health system in Ontario. .
