Information Update - Meaford Hospital

As Mayor and Council, we are very concerned about the impact of the consolidation of surgical services in Owen Sound as proposed by Grey Bruce Health Services (GBHS) (https://www.gbhs.on.ca/news_display.php?id=254&pgid=12). The Meaford Hospital is a critical part of our community, from both the perspective of primary health care for current residents, and our projected residential growth.

Council passed resolution 05-05-2017 (as attached) on February 6, 2017 in support of the Meaford Hospital. GBHS CEO Lance Thurston will be attending the Council meeting on March 13, 2017 at 2:00pm to provide further information on the proposed changes, and members of the public are welcome to attend.

I would also like to remind our community members who are circulating petitions in support of the Meaford Hospital to forward them to the Minister of Health and Long Term Care to encourage changes to the funding formula at the provincial level.

The minister can be reached at:

Dr. Eric Hoskins

Minister of Health and Long Term Care
