Here is my petition in support of the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital’s redevelopment. Along with the CPDMH email campaign that was launched October 3rd, your signature on this petition will go a long way to helping us secure the necessary and required funding to get our hospital redeveloped. This is a new petition, so even if you have signed my previous petition for the hospital’s redevelopment, you can sign this one too.
Please put your name behind our efforts to have our hospital redeveloped. Tell your friends and neighbours about this petition, and share it on Facebook and Twitter.
A Petition to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario – Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Redevelopment
To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
Whereas, the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) has been appealing to the Ministry of Health for redevelopment funding and approval since 2003;
And whereas, population growth and demand for services at the hospital have increased beyond the hospital’s ability to serve under current conditions;
And whereas, both the Carleton Place community and neighbouring municipalities have demonstrated their support for this redevelopment through the donation of land and other financial contributions, and the project has the support of the Champlain LHIN;
And whereas, continued delays in the approval and funding of this redevelopment will have a severe negative impact on the delivery of health services not only for the people of Carleton Place, but also for people in Beckwith Township, Mississippi Mills, Drummond/North Elmsley, Lanark Highlands as well as negatively impacting Stittsville and Kanata;
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
That the Ministry of Health and other involved agencies approve funding for the development of CPDMH before these communities find themselves facing a crisis situation.
