- Elisabeth Riley, CEO, et al, Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital, Orillia, Ontario, Canada
At the end of June, 2012 the Board of Directors and CEO were directed to enact budgetary cuts, some of which are to the detriment of not only the community, but the patients as well.
Of particular concern is the plans to move the chemotherapy clinic from Orillia to Barrie, which would cause most of the cancer patients in Orillia and surrounding area such as Muskoka and some areas of Haliburton/Kawartha Lakes undue hardships, unnecessary stress, drastically increased travel times, and general detriment to the health, morale and well being of all the cancer patients, their friends and family, caregivers, concerned citizens, tax payers, donators and the community in general.
We are requesting that the chemotherapy clinic be kept active in Orillia as it presently is.
We, the undersigned, as oncology patients, family and friends of said patients, as well as concerned citizens, tax payers and donators, hereby respectfully request that Elisabeth Riley CEO and the Board of Directors, et al, of Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital (OSMH), as well as the Local Health Integrated Network (LHIN) Board Members, do not move any part of the chemotherapy clinic to Barrie, and keep the chemotherapy clinic fully active here in Orillia at OSMH as such a move would be detrimental to the health and well being of everyone concerned especially the cancer patients.
