Orléans Health Committee assures community hub
still on track
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
