In April 2014 concerns over potential elimination of local ophthalmologic services coupled with the ongoing debate and controversy regarding PGH closure, the Midland Seniors Council orchestrated 2 town hall style healthcare meetings, resulting in the formation of an ad hoc committee to strengthen citizen engagement. Regular meetings were set up for citizens, mayors and LHIN discussions which led to the launching of the CHSC in September 2015.
You are invited to attend the next meeting on Monday October 17th 2016 at 7:00PM at the Wyebridge Community Centre 8340 Hwy 93, Wyebridge.
