Your article regarding possible elimination of operating room services at GBHS Meaford touches on a subject of great concern.
This action has not been caused by the GBHS administration in Owen Sound. Over the past few years, after the provincial government made funding formula adjustments negatively affecting all hospitals in lower density population areas, GBHS was formed and brought several area facilities under one umbrella. They worked diligently to create an efficient, professional, well-run health service while maintaining several small community hospitals. And this was done with balanced budgets. Having made use of the facilities locally and in Owen Sound, I am thankful they were able to accomplish this.
