Bracebridge Mayor fights to keep healthcare services local
Bracebridge Mayor Graydon Smith says any plans that don’t keep vibrant programs and services at Muskoka’s two hospitals in Bracebridge and Huntsville must be rejected. This week Smith wrote MAHC Board Chair Larry Saunders about Bracebridge residents concerns. Smith says the relocation of chemotherapy services to Huntsville from Bracebridge is seen as having a negative impact on Bracebridge. He adds there’s a groundswell of support from residents and members of the South Muskoka medical community to get that decision reversed. With long term planning underway at MAHC, Smith wants to meet with MAHC’s board. He hopes they give serious thought to the letter and that no more services leave town.
