Visiting LHSC

At LHSC, our commitment to patients is grounded in People-Centred Care. People-Centred Care is working with patients and care partners to plan, improve and provide care that is respectful, compassionate, culturally safe and competent. 

"People-Centred Care is an approach that consciously adopts individuals', carers', families' and communities' perspectives as participants in, and beneficiaries of, trusted health systems that are organized around the comprehensive needs of people." - Health Standards Organization (2019), Towards People-Centred Care Culture and Practice
