Health care in Northeast Winnipeg took a turn for the worse last Friday when the provincial government announced that ambulances bringing patients to Concordia ER will divert to other hospitals starting Mon., Dec. 10.
We have also heard that general surgery will be stopped at Concordia Hospital early in the new year.
Stopping general surgery will be the second lump of coal northeast Winnipeg residents will receive as a Christmas present from the province.
Northeast Winnipeg will suffer while the government is busy shutting down the Concordia ER that has served the area for 40 years. Residents will have to wait in long lines at St. Boniface Hospital, the Health Sciences Centre, and the Grace Hospital.
Please visit the "Keep Concordia ER Open" website and fill out the survey and comment on these and other changes.
