Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) is excited to be hosting a series of community open houses across our region both in-person and virtually to engage community members and update the public on the capital redevelopment journey to build two new hospitals in the future in Muskoka.
With provincial government support for a new hospital in Huntsville on the existing land, and a new hospital in Bracebridge on new land, MAHC is working through Stage 1.3 of the Ministry of Health’s planning process, which will include site selection for a new location of the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital (SMMH) Site.
“Community engagement has been an essential part of the planning process to date and feedback from internal and external stakeholders has shaped our plan for two new sites,” says MAHC President & CEO Cheryl Harrison. “Community Open Houses are a great opportunity to receive an update on our progress to date, ask questions, get involved in exploring land options for SMMH, and provide feedback on the preliminary criteria for choosing the best location for a new hospital in Bracebridge.”

January 19 – 7 p.m. – Dwight Community Centre
