Dr. Jason Sutherland, a family physician with the City of Lakes Family Health Team, is the new North East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) Primary Care Lead for the Sudbury/Manitoulin/Parry Sound Sub-Region. Dr. Sutherland will work closely with the NE LHIN and its other clinical care leads and health service providers to help improve access to more coordinated care for people living across the area. He will continue to care for his patients at the City of Lakes Family Health Team.
“Dr. Sutherland is a great addition to our NE LHIN team,” said Louise Paquette, CEO of the NE LHIN. “His wide-ranging experience – from primary care to teaching and publishing – brings helpful perspective to the work needed to ensure quality care for Northerners whether they are in a primary care or home and community care setting.”
