44. In each region having more than one integrated health and social services centre, the integrated centres that operate a child and youth protection centre and those that operate a rehabilitation centre serve, for each of those missions, the region’s entire population.
In such regions, any integrated centre that does not operate a child and youth protection centre must enter into an agreement with any integrated centre that operates such a centre. The agreement sets out the terms governing patient management by the first integrated centre with regard to users in its territory who require care or services to supplement those provided by the second integrated centre.
In the regions concerned, similar agreements must be entered into between any integrated centre that does not operate a rehabilitation centre and any integrated centre that does, and between all integrated centres that operate rehabilitation centres belonging to different classes.
