An expert panel has concluded that babies should continue to be delivered in Leamington.

In a report released today, the panel recommends that “birthing services in Leamington and area continue under a new model: a community-based, patient and family centric, integrated system of partners with independent governance. A Navigation Centre Hub, central to the organization of this
maternal/child/family model, will facilitate safe, sustainable and timely access for mothers, babies and families, while sensitive to the unique
needs of the populations served.”

The proposed model includes a community-based “Navigation Centre” staffed by regulated health professionals who will either be at the Centre or
on-call on a 24/7 basis year-round.

The entire report is available online at this link here.

A public meeting will be held at 6pm on May 5th at the Roma Club of Leamington.
