QUEEN’S PARK – Nursing stations across Muskoka had MPP Norm Miller on his feet in the legislature today.
This morning during Question Period, the, MPP for Parry Sound – Muskoka questioned the new Liberal Minister of Health Eric Hoskins on funding for nursing stations throughout the District of Muskoka.
“I believe that the success of nursing stations in the Parry Sound District illustrates the value that they provide for small, rural communities. The District of Muskoka plan is well thought-out and certainly warrants a meeting with the Minister” said Miller.
“Access to healthcare is a growing concern, particularly when many in need of care already travel great distances to receive treatment. This ‘Made-in-Muskoka’ plan aims to address the key challenges faced by seniors and low income families, as well as the seasonal population” added Miller in a news release.
The District submission outlines plans for possible nursing stations to be located in Dorset, Severn Bridge, Port Severn, and Port Carling.
“I am pleased that the Minister has agreed to the meeting and look forward to the next steps.” said Miller.
