Final report on NHS complete

Posted Dec 31st, 1969

Supervisor Dr. Kevin Smith’s final report on the Niagara Health System is complete.

The report has been submitted to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care for her consideration. It will be the decision of the Minister and the Government on whether to accept the recommendations in the report in whole or in part.

Highlights in Dr. Smith’s final report, after extensive consultation with all stakeholders, include recommendations of a single site in the “South” in the QEW and Lyons Creek area of Niagara; two free-standing Urgent Care Centres in Niagara; and consolidation of inpatient Obstetrics and Pediatrics to a single site (St. Catharines initially and then the new site in the South when built).
