Regional health hub being considered

Schooley

By Howaida Sorour-Roberts – Smiths Falls

There is currently an appetite for a health hub in the region.  At the April 18 town council meeting in Smiths Falls, Richard Schooley, chair of the Smiths Falls and District Hospital updated council on a proposed Health Hub initiative as a way of integrating a variety of health services within communities.

“There is a lot of evidence that we are not integrating our services properly,” said Shcooley.

In a region where the population is both growing and aging there is an urgent need to plan for growth and integration of the various health services as evidenced by the Health Links initiative, which puts patients at the centre of their care needs.

The proposal right now is to set up a committee involving various political bodies, including Lanark County, Frontenac County, Leeds and Grenville and City of Ottawa, Smiths Falls council as well as the healthcare community stakeholders to examine the possibility of creating a health hub.
