WINDSOR, ON, Feb. 8 /CNW/ - David Musyj, CEO of Windsor Regional Hospital
and Neil McEvoy, CEO of Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital, today issued the following
statement pertaining to media reports following the board meeting of Windsor
Regional Hospital of February 7, 2008:
"Our two hospital boards stand united and firm in their commitment to
fully implementing all of the Dupont jury recommendations within their power.
We owe it to the community, our patients and our staff to ensure a safe
and positive environment at our hospitals and will take all steps necessary -
including implementing the jury's recommendations - within our power to do so.
It is regrettable that media reports may have given the impression to the
staff of both hospitals and to the community that our commitment and desire to
implement the recommendations were not shared to the same degree.
Our determination is the same; implementation of the recommendations has
already been undertaken at both sites and we have a detailed, target-oriented
plan to achieve them."
