Today the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) dismissed CAMPP’s appeal and upheld the City of Windsor’s position related to the new hospital for our community.

This $2 billion investment in a new single-site acute care hospital in Windsor-Essex County is one step closer to getting done. I will continue to do whatever is required to see better health-care delivery for everyone in my community!!

Now that we have gone through this democratic process, we need to find a pathway forward and work together to make sure we carry this $2 billion investment for Windsor and Essex County through to completion. There is no doubt, anyone who works in health care in our local hospitals, anyone who has been a patient or had a loved one as a patient here understands exactly the urgency for a new regional hospital. Our current facilities are inadequate by today’s standards. It’s time we come together and move forward as a community and say in a unified voice that we want this hospital built as planned to make sure we can deliver the excellent health care that our community urgently needs.
