Reaction to Bracebridge’s proposal to donate land for a single acute care hospital site that could serve Muskoka has come swiftly from Gravenhurst. Gravenhurst’s Deputy Mayor Jeff Watson tells Moose FM his Town is thankful Bracebridge has brought the option forward…

Bracebridge has proposed to spend $1.3 million to buy 44.5 acres of land from Fowlers located off Depot Drive  in Bracebridge near HWY 11 so that a new acute care hospital site could be built to centrally serve all of Muskoka.

As to whether Gravenhurst Council would put some of its own money into the Bracebridge proposal, remains to be seen…

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) has yet to issue a statement on the proposal, its expected in the coming days.
