GBHS logo fullGrey Bruce Health Services (GBHS) is hosting a public information session at The Plex, Rotary Hall, in Port Elgin on Wednesday, April 5 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

From a March 28 media release, during this session, GBHS representatives will provide an update on the Lab and ER expansion project that is currently underway at the Southampton Hospital. In addition, the initiatives GBHS is currently pursuing to return the organization to a balanced financial position will be reviewed.

One of these initiatives is a recommendation to consolidate elective day surgeries currently performed at the Meaford, Markdale and Southampton hospitals into the surgical program at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital. Approximately 2.5 percent of the elective day surgeries performed at GBHS Hospitals are done in the Southampton Hospital.

All members of the public are welcome to attend.
