How lucky we are hospital cuts are not hitting us…yet, says lobbyist

The complexity of the changes to the healthcare system currently underway within the province, the Ontario Tories are making some serious cuts, along with major retooling. Ontario Health Coalition Executive Director Natalie Mehra was interviewed by Dave Glove and myself on Nov. 26, 2019. Inside this interview are examples of the stark contrast between the macro and micro changes taking place. While major cuts to hospitals elsewhere are taking place, Northumberland Hills Hospital has received about $6 million in the past 18 months from two consecutive governments. Some hospital boards are being replaced, while NHH remains one of those who still elect board members and engages with the community. Mehra reminds us of how fortunate we are, but how vigilant we must remain if we don’t want to lose what we have already.
