The President and CEO of Hamilton Health Sciences says they have “not talked about closing a hospital” in our city.
Responding to recent media reports that a local hospital could be shut down in the future, Rob MacIsaac says the plan is to build new hospitals over the next 20 years to replace some of the existing facilities in the city.
One of the new facilities could be a new hospital for women and children in Hamilton.
Hamilton Health’s long term plan is before the hospital’s board of directors Thursday afternoon and will be released to the public in the next month or so.
MacIsaac says he believes the report “will be well received.”
