An information session is being held to update residents of the Hazeltons on the transferring of services at Wrinch Memorial Hospital from the United Church Health Services Society to Northern Health.
The public meeting will be held this Thursday from 10am to 11:30am at The Meeting Place at 3226 Bowser Street in New Hazelton.
Penny Anguish is with Northern Health, and she says from a patient perspective, there shouldn’t be any difference the day after the transfer.
The United Church decided to transfer the hospital and associated health services after a strategic review.
The transfer will take place on March 31st, 2016.
