Steering committee comes to understanding on integration of local hospital governance

The joint steering committee on local hospital governance integration reviewed and finalized a “memorandum of understanding” at a meeting on Nov. 4.

“We are in unanimous support of the (memorandum) and will be presenting its content to the two hospital boards at a joint board meeting on Nov. 17,” states a joint press release from North Wellington Health Care board chair Tom Sullivan and Groves hospital board chair Howard Dobson.

At this meeting, the release states, the hospital boards will have an opportunity to participate in a discussion and pose questions about the memorandum.

A resolution to approve the memorandum will be considered at board meetings during the week of Nov. 22.
