Health system changes focus of Scarborough meetings

Scarborough Mirror

The Scarborough Hospital is holding more community meetings this month on what it calls a coming health system transformation.

Hospital officials want residents to know a new provincial formula will make it necessary to cut TSH’s operating budget and move some services out of its Birchmount or General campuses.

Some of these possible adjustments will be recommended in a consultant’s strategic review for the hospital, which is expected to be finished and released this month.

Though the consultant’s proposals aren’t ready yet, the meetings are a chance for hospital officials “to share information” on the need for changes with Scarborough residents and to be questioned by them in turn.

Upcoming meetings are at Warden Woods Community Centre next Wednesday, Jan. 9, at Malvern Community Recreation Centre on Jan. 10 and Cedarbrook Community Centre on Jan. 14.

Each meeting is from 7 to 9 p.m.

More public meetings are expected to be scheduled after the review’s release.
