WELLAND – A Hospital and Urgent Care town hall meeting is being held here this week.
The meeting is in Welland city hall’s Community Room, Thursday, November 30 at 7pm.
Late last month, health and long-term-care minister Dr. Eric Hoskins announced the Welland hospital would remain open even though a new hospital in Niagara Falls was given the green light.
The meeting on Thursday is being sponsored by Save Our Hospital Group, Niagara Health Coalition and Ontario Health Coalition.
A flyer being distributed to promote the meeting says: ‘Let’s make sure it’s (Welland’s) a full serviced hospital!’
The flyer says the sponsors amount to “one voice working together to save our hospital’s services and urgent care centre.”
The meeting agenda includes reports from local politicians, the Save Our Hospital group and the two coalitions.
“Give us your input and help plan our next steps to maintain and enhance our health services in South Niagara.”
