The steering committee overseeing the planning of a new mega hospital for the region is establishing a subcommittee to oversee the process of site selection.

This group’s subcommittee will be made up of six current or former Windsor Regional Hospital volunteer board members and four volunteer members of the public.

“This is an important step in the process,” says Dave Cooke, Co-Chair of the Program and Services Steering Committee. “Once we know where the hospital will be located, we can concentrate on what it will look like and what services it will offer, and that will define the future of healthcare in our region.”

The Steering Committee will define a set of criteria for a location, and the weight given to each criterion and then the community will have an opportunity to review the draft criteria and provide feedback online.

They will review the final recommendation and, if accepted, will forward the recommended site to the Windsor Regional Hospital Board of Directors.  Once the Board of Directors of Windsor Regional Hospital approves a site, it will be submitted to the Erie St. Clair LHIN for endorsement to The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.

The site selection process is expected to begin this summer and take a few months to complete.

David Musyj, Windsor Regional Hospital President & CEO and Co-Chair of the Steering Committee, says the process is open and transparent. “In many other new hospital announcements the location is just announced. Having volunteer Board members from our community and individuals from the public at large making a recommendation as to the selection of the preferred site is novel, open and transparent. Having the community provide feedback on the criteria that will be used for the selection of the state-of-the-art acute care site has never been done before as far as we can tell.”
