Community Information Sessions August Schedule

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) is continuing a visioning journey to plan hospital care for our future generations and invites the public to get involved and informed.

Later this month, MAHC is hosting a series of information sessions to update our communities on MAHC’s future planning journey and progress to date. Please join us to learn more about the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s support to continue the planning journey and commence Stage 1 planning.

At the community information sessions, we will provide an overview of the Stage 1 planning stage and what is involved in a Stage 1 submission, and how MAHC is working to complete this stage of planning with key stakeholders through a new Capital Plan Development Task Force. These information sessions will be an opportunity for the public to understand the link between MAHC’s planning work and the Muskoka and Area Health System Transformation (MAHST) initiative.

As well, these sessions will include an update on potential models for delivering hospital services in the future and the potential criteria that will be used to evaluate these models. Members of the public will be able to share their feedback on the models and draft criteria through a feedback survey on the MAHC website, all of which will be critical to helping the Capital Plan Development Task Force make the best recommendation for the future to the MAHC Board of Directors.

Community support will be critical to developing the plan for the future and members of the public are encouraged to attend an event near them.
