Health Minister: Grimsby hospital build not in 5 year plan
Ontario's Health Minister is getting a little more specific now about when the province will reconsider the shelved rebuild of West Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Grimsby.
The $136-million project was axed in the recent provincial budget as a cost-cutting measure.
Last week, Deb Matthews told 610 CKTB the project will at some point move forward, but didn't say when.
Tuesday, Matthews told 2 local papers, it isn't in the government's 5-year plan. Speaking with The Standard, she adds that West Lincoln Memorial in on a list of projects ready to go ahead when the province has the cash. The Health Minister tells Niagara This Week "This is a hospital that we know needs to be done."
At least 12 000 people agree. They turned out to a rally at Grimsby Secondary School last week to have the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital build re-instated.
