The Minister deserves recognition for his support as do MPPs Lisa Thompson and Bill Walker who early on became champions for the program and who kept this issue at the forefront of the healthcare agenda. SBGHC is committed to working with our regional health stakeholders to develop a regional plan that will meet the interests and healthcare needs of so many people in Grey and Bruce Counties," said Rosebush.
