The MPP for Prince Edward Hastings says the “Queen’s Park knows best attitude”, is all over the decision to locate a health hub in downtown Trenton.
Todd Smith says most community groups want the hub located at the Trenton Memorial Hospital site, but the province is leaning towards the CHC site in the downtown.
Smith says the problem here is the province did not consult the public, and community stakeholders.
He says with QHC saying something different from the LHIN on the cleanliness of the TMH site, they need to be sure they have all the facts on the table.
A final decision has not been made on the hub, which is to include social and medical health services under one roof.
The Belleville Quinte West Community Health Centre is in need of a new building in the downtown.
