Campbellford Memorial Hospital Board Chair and CEO Provide an Update on Proposed Hospital Redevelopment

In Community, Local

As a community, we all share a responsibility to ensure that our hospital continues to provide access to the best possible care to those who need it. That is why the leadership team at Campbellford Memorial Hospital has been diligently advocating for a redeveloped hospital as part of a Campus of Care.  Once complete, our Campus of Care will include a redeveloped Hospital, a new Long Term Care Home, community health programs like our Mental Health and GAIN clinics, and supportive community housing.  Recently, we, along with a number of board members, have had the opportunity to present, in the forum of delegations, to both Minister of Health Sylvia Jones and Minister of Long Term Care Paul Calandra, held meetings with MPP’s David Piccini and Ric Breese, and presented to a number of different municipal councils in our region.  Recognizing that our Board is comprised of residents across our regions we asked them to be part of the local delegations enabling them to provide local perspectives of the much-needed investments to our local health system.

Through these meetings and delegations, we were able to highlight the importance of investing in our hospital’s future and modernizing healthcare delivery in our region.  We described the challenges and limitations of our aging facility; such as difficulties in meeting modern infection prevention and control standards, and our lack of private rooms and accessibility features.  Most importantly though, we shared our vision of a modern, larger hospital, as part of a state-of-the-art Campus of Care with partnerships with other area health facilities that will serve our communities for generations to come.

We know we cannot do this alone. Which is why we are so grateful for the support we have received from our municipal partners and Provincial representatives.  We need their support, and the support of the community, to make our vision a reality.  Together, we can rebuild Campbellford Memorial Hospital as part of a Campus of Care and ensure our communities have access to the exceptional care they deserve.
