Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare is now offering ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgery. Chief Executive Officer Natalie Bubela says having ENT surgery available, locally, will be of great value to Muskoka as residents had to travel outside the community to get this service done. A doctor from Orillia will travel to Huntsville Hospital twice a month to perform the surgery. Bubela says MAHC now has four surgical subspecialties available in Muskoka in addition to general surgery.

The Huntsville Hospital Foundation helped make this happen with $100,000 in funding to purchase instruments, trays and other equipment needed for ENT surgery. Bubela says they’re grateful to their fundraising partners for their investment in making this happen.
