The Southwest Ontario Regional Base Hospital Program (SWORBHP) is one of eight Regional Base Hospitals in Ontario (7 land and 1 air), dedicated to medical direction, leadership and advice in the provision of prehospital emergency health care.

In October 2008, SWORBHP began operation under the leadership of London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC). Today, SWORBHP provides medical oversight to approximately 1700 paramedics (Primary and Advanced Care Paramedics) who serve a population of approximately 1 million people.

SWORBHP’s oversight spans a large and diverse geographical region within Southwest Ontario, while providing leadership, guidance and advice to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) on provincial mandates.
