Cornwall Ontario – After complaints from multiple countries, including right here in Cornwall in Canada, the Cornwall Community Hospital has decided to discontinue their relationship with Patient Direct as of May 2018.
Jolene Soares sent a communication from Hospital President & CEO Jeanette Despatie Friday afternoon confirming the details.
We are in the process of sending all the advertisers on our patient direct tv a letter informing them that we are not renewing the contract and that the current contract ends in May of 2018. We are apologizing for any inconveniences they have experienced with the company.
While Patient Direct was charging local businesses thousands of dollars for multi year commitments with rollover clauses the hospital itself was receiving little to no monies.
CFN has offered to assist or help connect CCH with a similar service that actually see most, if not all of the money directed to patient care and hospital needs.
