CFN – The board of the Eastern Ontario Health Unit will be meeting with Ms Chantale LeClerc of the Champlain LHIN today (Thursday January 10, 2013) at 5 PM to discuss the Cornwall General Hospital site which is up for sale for $2Million dollars.
The public has responded loudly that they don’t wish to see the facility disappear and want answers.
The meeting was to be a closed one until a last minute decision was made to open it to the public.
So if you care about the 2nd Street Hospital and the lack of long term care beds show up if you can at 1000 Pitt Street.

It’s your city Cornwall & SD&G and these are your tax dollar supported public servants. Now is the time to make your voice heard!
Ultimately it will be up to the Minster of Health, Deb Matthews according to the act:
Approval of sales
4) No land, building or other premises or place or any part thereof acquired or used for the purposes of a hospital shall be sold, leased, mortgaged or otherwise disposed of without the approval of the Minister. R.S.O. 1990, c. P.40, s. 4 (4).
