MPP Norm Miller yesterday said that Healthcare leaders in Parry Sound-Muskoka have told him that Bill 74 is a good step towards creating integrated healthcare.

Miller took time during the debate on the Bill, the People’s Healthcare Act to highlight that support from local healthcare leaders and to thank the Minister of Health for ensuring that the redevelopment of both the Huntsville and Bracebridge sites of Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare was in the budget.

Miller spoke about a meeting he and Christine Elliott, Minister of Health and Long Term Care, had with members of the Muskoka and Area Health Transformation council as well as other healthcare leaders from Parry Sound-Muskoka on March 11, 2019 in Bracebridge.

“I was very pleased to have an opportunity to sit down with Minister Elliott and health care leaders from across my riding in March,” he said. “Doctors, mental health workers, nurses, administrators and patients were all represented, and the tone of the meeting was overwhelmingly positive,” he said Miller.
