On Thursday, January 24, 2019, the Scarborough Health Network held a board meeting and its members voted unanimously to close the obstetric and paediatric departments in Birchmount Hospital. Formerly known as the Scarborough Grace Hospital, the Birchmount Hospital is the only full-service hospital in Scarborough–Agincourt and it has serviced residents in the community for over thirty years.
Having access to local health care is important for the people of Scarborough—Agincourt and the obstetric and paediatric departments must remain open.
If you care about quality local health care, I encourage you to voice your concerns and join me in supporting our community’s hospital:
MPP Aris Babikian
Minister Christine Elliott
CEO of Scarborough Health Network
