There’s a sign this week that the Ontario government has not forgotten about the Markdale Hospital.
Bruce-Grey Owen Sound Conservative MPP Bill Murdoch received a reply this week from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, regarding his petition about the construction of a new hospital in Markdale.
The petitions signed by people throughout southern Grey County requested that the Ministry of Health announce as soon as possible its intended construction date for the new Markdale Hospital.
The response this week indicated that the hospital submission is under review.
A release from Murdoch’s office stated that the response was ‘good news’, and the Ministry is reviewing all plans and applications submitted by Grey Bruce Health Services.”
Residents of Markdale and surrounding areas have been privately fundraising for the construction of the proposed new hospital, raising millions of dollars to help cover the cost of any future construction.
