The Province will be providing relief to medium-sized hospitals that run consistent deficits yesterday.  The province promised solutions very soon, after facing questions from mayors, and councillors - including Bracebridge Mayor Graydon Smith - at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario Conference in Ottawa.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said “This is something we’ve heard about repeatedly from medium-sized hospitals,” after Smith asked about her plan for mid-sized healthcare facilities, which “struggle” under their current funding formula.

Elliott said “We’re coming forward with solutions very soon.”
