In July of this year we circulated to our members a Family Health Hub Survey developed by the Oakville Ad Hoc Advisory Committee, OTMH Site. The purpose of the survey was (1) to assess what effect the OTMH move will have on residents living in South-Central and South-East Oakville, especially those who are seniors and those of any age who are physically challenged or require continuing, chronically complex care, and (2) to assess service options for the proposed Family Health Hub adjacent to or part of the planned Community Centre.
Five residents associations, including JCRA, assisted the Ad Hoc Committee in the distribution of the survey. The response to the survey was tremendous. 1,204 households responded. Thank you for your participation! The results of the survey have been summarized by the Ad Hoc Committee in its report to the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network ( “MH LHIN” ). The report is posted below. The Ad Hoc committee advises they are working with the LHIN on taking action to address the concerns raised and the resident associations are reaching out to MPP Flynn to ask for his assistance.
In addition we have already delegated to Town Council emphasizing the urgent need for a Family Health Hub in close proximity to the planned Community Centre. The JCRA will continue to work tirelessly to make sure we have a Community Centre with the types of services you require. Once again, thank you for your participation in the survey. We will update you as we become aware of progress.
