Listen to this article

This afternoon, I attended the Couchiching Ontario Health Team facility in Orillia with MPP Jill Dunlop, Orillia Mayor McIsaac and Simcoe North health care leaders for the announcement of meaningful new community health care funding.

The Couchiching Ontario Health Team will connect an estimated 19,200 unattached patients in
Orillia and surrounding areas with their funding of over $2.3 million. The North Simcoe Ontario
Health Team will connect an estimated 800 unattached patients in North Simcoe – Midland area,
receiving $90,831.
I have learned that this funding will go to Wendat for additional mental health crisis worker coverage at Georgian Bay General Hospital.

As a community, we are extremely grateful for this substantial investment for the North Simcoe
Family Health team by the province. Today’s announcement underscores our unified
commitment to providing the best care to our community and strengthens our partnerships in
healthcare, ensuring that together, we can continue to deliver excellence in healthcare for all.

Bill Gordon ~ Midland Mayor

  1. It’d be great to get an Urgent Cate Clinic established here in Midland so those without family doctors can get the access to care and advice without going to the GBGH Emergency Department. How can we achieve this?

    • where will Midland use this money, more Drs. more clinics or nurse practitioners, I guess we need all 3, this money will help us get started
