Since the summer of 2010, two important meetings have been held with provincial government officials. Staff of Grey Bruce Health Services, working closely with the South West LHIN and the South East Grey Community Health Centre, met with the Capital Branch of Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and also with Infrastructure Ontario. Both meetings were very constructive and have led to more detailed conversations about our new hospital project. We share our community’s frustration that an official go-ahead has not yet been given. However, we continue to be optimistic, knowing from events of the past six months that our project is very much alive and in the eye of Provincial authorities. Although the Foundation is not directly involved in these meetings, we will keep you informed of developments in regard to our new hospital.
