We just picked up from The Standard some very good news. It appears the Province is giving $500,000 to kick-start the building of a new West Lincoln Memorial Hospital.
The announcement this morning at WLMH by Premier Ford, Health Minister Christine Elliott and our own MPP Sam Oosterhoff includes a pledge of $8.5 million in infrastructure improvements for the hospital.
Additionally, obstetrics and surgical services will not be removed from the hospital as had been previously announced.
