Orléans Health Committee assures community hub still on track

Plans to build a family health hub in the east end are still alive and well according to the Orléans Health Committe which has been keeping a watchful eye on the project since it was first announced in 2009.

According to an open letter released to the media by Health Committee member Marion Moritz, the project is currently in the hands of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network.

The LHIN has spent the last two months consulting potential health hub partners with the goal of confirming the type and level of services that will be provided through the Hub and by whom.

In response to the community needs that surfaced during the consultation process, the Hub will contain a Family Health Team, an Urgent Care Clinic, a laboratory, diagnostic imaging services, geriatric care and mental health services. In addition, the hub will have Community Care Access Centre on-site and collaborate with local resource centres. This list is by no means exclusive, and could see further changes.

The province has already committed $60 million to build the health care facility on Mer Bleue Road with construction likely to begin shortly after the LHIN has completed it's work and the projct partners have been confirmed and committed.
