UPDATE ON OUR ACTIONS AND A CALL FOR CONTINUED SUPPORT
In response to the recent closure of the Minden Emergency Room (ER) by Haliburton Highlands Health Services (HHHS), our group, Save Minden ER, has taken several actions to ensure our voices are heard and that the concerns of our community are addressed.
We have demanded an urgent public meeting with the CEO and Board Chair of HHHS to discuss the decision-making process, the timing of the closure, and access to the organization’s transition plan. We have also called for a thorough assessment of the closure’s impact on vulnerable populations, healthcare staff, regional growth, and local infrastructure.
Despite the challenges we face, we are encouraged by the support we have received from the community, local elected officials, healthcare professionals, and others who share our concerns about the closure’s potential consequences.
Our group’s efforts have raised awareness, but we need your continued support. We urge you to join us in advocating for a transparent and inclusive decision-making process that considers the needs and concerns of all stakeholders.
By working together, we can ensure that our community remains informed, engaged, and committed to preserving access to essential healthcare services.
Here’s how you can help:
Share your thoughts and concerns with your local elected officials, healthcare providers, and friends and family.
Participate in any upcoming public meetings or events related to the Minden ER closure.
We believe that with your help, we can make a difference in the fight to preserve access to essential healthcare services in our community. Thank you for your continued support, and let’s work together to save the Minden ER.
