Fedeli Calls on Premier to Help the North Bay Regional Health CentreMarch 20, 2017
QUEEN’S PARK – Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli is calling on the Wynne government to take immediate action regarding upcoming cuts to the North Bay Regional Health Centre.
“Over the last 5 years, 350 frontline healthcare workers have been cut from the North Bay Regional Health Centre. That includes 100 nurses and 60 beds have been closed in this new hospital. This week, between 30 and 40 more healthcare workers will be sent home. We can’t take much more of this!” stated MPP Fedeli in the Legislature today.
Due to escalating hydro costs and a lack of support from the Wynne government, the hospital was unable to balance their budget. This makes them ineligible for $7 million in Working Capital Relief; money the North Bay Reginal Health Centre desperately needs.
“They’re in a no-win, downward spiral.” Fedeli added
“Will the Premier re-admit the North Bay Regional Health Centre into the Relief program, allowing them to hit their targets and stop this downward cycle?” concluded Fedeli.
