The Champlain LHIN's health system planning and funding functions are now part of Ontario Health, a government agency responsible for ensuring Ontarians continue to receive high-quality health care services where and when they need them.

MRI Locations & Wait Times

The purpose of this page is to give health care providers easier access to information on MRIs in the Champlain Region.

If you are a person seeking MRI services, you must consult with your doctor or nurse practitioner. Please note: the LHIN is unable to arrange MRIs for you. This is done through a referral process with each person’s doctor or nurse practitioner.

Fall 2020 update for health care providers

  • You will need to submit MRI requisitions through the new Central Intake for Outpatient MRI, which was recently adopted throughout the region. The aim of the new process is to improve the referral process, and reduce median wait times.
  • You can still note patient preference on the requisition form, but the central intake process normally ensures the requests are routed to the most available and appropriate site for the specific needs of the patient.

The Champlain LHIN’s goal for these services in the region: from the point the physician orders the MRI scan, 90 per cent of people receive their scans within the following targets:

  • Urgent: 2 days
  • Semi-urgent: 2-10 days
  • Elective: 28 days.
