An open letter has been sent to the Muskoka Algonquin Heathcare board. The letter has been signed by many healthcare professionals in Huntsville and is a last push to convince the board to keep two acute care sites in Muskoka.

A steering committee will present their recommendation on the future of local healthcare, which could include closing surgical services at Huntsville Hospital. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 14.

We’ll have a more on this story on Thursday, May 7. To read the open letter click Open Letter To MAHC.
