Ontario Health Coalition Media Advisory: Action Meeting on Central East LHIN Plans to Cut and Centralize Hospital Services

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 29, 2009) -

ATTENTION: ASSIGNMENT EDITOR



What: Action Meeting on Central East LHIN plans to cut and centralize
hospital services

The Central East LHIN is planning to cut and centralize hospital
services into fewer hospitals across their huge geographic region
(Scarborough to past Cobourg, Lake Ontario to bottom of Algonquin
Park). This will have a tremendous impact on patient access to
care, especially for the elderly and other marginalized patients
for whom long distance travel is a hardship.

Following its successful April 20th summit on this looming crisis,
the Ontario Health Coalition is holding a Strategy Implementation
Meting to follow up on the summit's recommendations with action to
fight these drastic cuts to medical services in the Central East
LHIN region.

Anyone in the region is welcome to attend.

When: Monday, June 29th, 2009, 1-4 PM

Where: The Lion's Centre, 347 Burnham Street, Peterborough
