The Central East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is trying to stop the province from cutting beds in long term care facilities.

CEO Deborah Hammons says it’s a huge concern for Extendicare in Haliburton County because there already isn’t enough. Warden Murray Fearrey says our small community can’t afford that because it will mean jobs lost.

Hammons also tells councillors the improvements that have been made aren’t enough. She says there needs to be more money, and they’re working on improving services.
