TIMMINS HOSPITAL FACING SERIOUS COST OVERRUNS

Timmins and District Hospital will be reviewing some of their programs as they look to try and balance their budget for the coming year.

The hospital released a statement Friday that confirmed they are going to suffer deficits of $1 million in 2017/2018 and $2 million the year following.

Nickel Belt MPP France Gelinas says hospital budgets are not permitted to have deficits due to a provincial requirement.

TADH’s statement read that due to these pending deficits, they are looking to balance their budget through several possible changes, including ending their Sleep Study Clinic.

Gelinas says the Sleep Study Clinic has cost the hospital close to $150,000 annually after initially breaking even.

This news comes after Gelinas and Timmins-James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson spoke with the Minister of Health Dr. Eric Hoskins earlier last week.
