The Doug Ford government is creating a central agency called Ontario Health to oversee the province's $60-billion health-care system.

The super-agency — unveiled Tuesday by Health Minister Christine Elliott — will be formed by dissolving the 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) and merging their duties with those of six provincial health agencies, including Cancer Care Ontario and eHealth Ontario.

CBC News was first to reveal the health-system merger plans with a report in January on the provincial government's intention to dissolve the LHINs. Since then, leaked documents obtained by the NDP, including draft legislation, revealed more about the changes the government was considering.
