Since the implementation of reduced operating hours for the Chesley site Emergency Department (ED), SBGHC has held two public meetings (September and January) at the Chesley Community Centre to provide updates, answer questions and address the concerns of the Chesley Community. At the end of the January meeting, we committed to providing an update on our progress at another public meeting to be held in May.
Given the current restrictions in place regarding large public gatherings, we will be unable to hold a public meeting in May. In place of the meeting, please find attached an open letter to the community from our Board Chair, John Gilbert.
As outlined in the letter, our commitment to ensuring that the Chesley ED returns to 24/7 service remains strong, and we intend to refocus our efforts on getting this accomplished.
