The head of the Southeast LHIN says a big step has been taken in the creation of a health hub in Trenton, but more government approvals are still needed before the process can continue.
Paul Huras tells Quinte News the government has given capital approval to part one of the project, which is space for the Community Health Centre, but they’re still awaiting approval of the plans for stage two before moving forward.
The second stage would encompass other medical and community services agencies that can work hand-in-hand with the health centre and patients from across the region.
Huras says they’re hoping to hear about approval for stage two within the next month.
When construction begins, the hub will be built on land next to Trenton Memorial Hospital.
