Niagara hospital closures recommended

Douglas Memorial Hospital will be closed in seven years if the Ontario Ministry of Health accepts the recommendations of Dr. Kevin Smith, the government appointed supervisor of the Niagara Health System.

A source in the advisory circle of the NHS said that Niagara-on-the-Lake and Port Colborne will also lose their hospitals and Greater Niagara General Hospital will be moved from downtown Niagara Falls to somewhere closer to the QEW.

A single satellite urgent care centre will established in south Niagara.

Smith is meeting with municipal leaders this morning and will hold a press conference this afternoon to release his recommendations.
