A task force has been launched to look at the needs of future hospital services, and where those services are provided in the Windsor region, with a focus at looking into building a new, single site acute care hospital.
The task force is looking for input from local health care experts and community stakeholders to answer the following questions:
- Would a new, single site acute care hospital improve the delivery of acute care services in Windsor-Essex?
- Would a new single site acute care facility provide good value for money?
- If there is community support for a new hospital, what other considerations must be addressed during subsequent planning phases?
Today a website was launched, and Windsorites are asked to visit it, read the consultation paper and provide feed back to the members of the task force. Consultation with he community will take place all summer long with a recommendation expected sometime late fall.
