Table 2

The average population coverage rates (SD) of inpatient and emergency care within the catchments of 30, 60 and 120 min by driving, walking and the mixture of the both travel modes, respectively, stratified by hospitals and LHINs. Regardless of hospital types and travel modes, the coverage rates decrease with the travel times increase. For both inpatient and emergency cares, northern LHINs demonstrate higher coverage rates than those in Southern LHINs
