On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, Grey Bruce Health Services (GBHS) is hosting a public information session at the Meaford and St. Vincent Community Centre.

During this session, GBHS President and CEO Lance Thurston will review the many initiatives GBHS is currently pursuing to return the organization to a balanced financial position. One of the initiatives, which will be the main focus of the session, is a recommendation to consolidate elective day surgeries currently performed at the Meaford, Markdale and Southampton hospitals into the surgical program at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital.

Approximately 12 percent of the elective day surgeries performed at GBHS hospitals are done at the three rural hospitals.

Public information sessions are currently being planned in Southampton and Markdale, and details will be available shortly.

All members of the public are welcome to attend. Parking is free.
