Dynacare Inc. and the OTTAWA GENERAL HOSPITAL have signed a memorandum of understanding to create a partnership to provide medical diagnostic laboratory services for hospitals and the community. The plans are expected to be finalized by the fall of 1996.
ONTARIO's Health Services Restructuring Commission has announced it is ready to start work in London and in Lambton County. The commission has already published its decisions on health services restructuring in Thunder Bay, and on June 24 started work in Metro Toronto and Sudbury. Duncan Sinclair, chair, said: "There have been huge changes in health care over recent years. Medical procedures have improved, and so have drug therapies and surgical techniques. Very often people have day surgery instead of checking into a hospital, and if they do stay in hospital it's for a much shorter time." Because of these changes about 9,000 hospital beds have been closed across Ontario over the past five years, the equivalent of 30 medium-sized hospitals. " We all know we can't keep on spending money maintaining buildings we don't need, and on duplicated services and waste," he said. "We must put our resources into health care services that people really need."
