GBHS Receives Approval to Plan Next Steps For Centre Grey Hospital

Grey Bruce Health Services today received approval from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care on its Stage 2 Submission to rebuild the Centre Grey Hospital in Markdale.

“This is very good news for our Centre Grey communities and takes us one step closer to building a brand new hospital. Our next submission to the Ministry consists of the overall design for the new facility, and includes detailed engineering and architectural drawings. That Stage 3 document is well underway” said Lance Thurston, President and CEO of GBHS.

The new hospital will be approximately 68,000 square feet and includes four acute care beds, a palliative care room, 24/7 emergency room with five treatment areas, a procedures room, laboratory, diagnostic imaging services, physio, and space for ambulatory care clinics. Stage 4 involves the working drawings and final cost estimates, and once approved, the project goes to tender for construction.

“I know our communities and our donors have waited a long time for a new hospital, and we will continue working hard with the Ministry of Health and our LHIN to get the next Submission approved as soon as possible,” said Thurston.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2018 and will take two years to complete. Updates will be posted on the GBHS website at

2016 Silent Auction Results

Aug 17, 2016

Thanks to the generosity of many people, Centre Grey Health Services Foundation’s Silent Auction was a great success with over $17,500 being raised through the event.  More than 777 items were donated, 250 people came out to bid on the auction items, and over 70 volunteers graciously helped out during the event.

The funds raised through the Silent Auction will help with the purchase of Patient Monitoring Equipment for the hospital in Markdale, which will include:

  • Cardiac Monitors


  • Accuvein Viewer

has an ultra violet light to assess veins rather than rather than taking several pokes to find one

  • Tonometer:

an instrument used to assess eye pressure for glaucoma

  • Bi Pap Machine: 

assists with breathing  rather than introducing a tube into an airway

  • Bladder Scanner:

used for assessing patients, rather than introducing a catheter into a bladder

These are all excellent additions and improvements for the patients using the Markdale Hospital.
