“The intent of this Open House is to give Port Colborne and Wainfleet residents an opportunity to get acquainted with our Standing Committee members,” says Committee Chair Karen Marr. “The members are all residents of Port Colborne and Wainfleet, and we want input from our community about hospital services. We want to hear our community’s thoughts, concerns and suggestions.”
Visitors will see a display of floor plans for the new Urgent Care Centre, learn about health programs/services and take home information. There will be free parking and light refreshments. Please bring a non-perishable food item for the Port Colborne food drive collection.
Niagara Health System Standing Committees ensure that the perspectives, particular service requirements, unique needs, other issues and community interests of the smaller sites have an effective voice at the Board level and that these and other issues are considered in the NHS’s governance decisions.
