Media Advisory - OHC Announces Major Cross-Province Initiative Regarding
Small, Rural And Northern Hospitals

TORONTO, Feb. 22 /CNW/ -

    
    What:

    The Ontario Health Coalition in partnership with dozens of community
    groups in rural and northern Ontario, are announcing a series of cross-
    province activities. This group initiative is a direct response to the
    uncertain future of small, rural and northern health care, as a result of
    hospital restructuring. Local hospitals are facing ER closures,
    elimination and privatization of hospital services and programs, and in
    some instances the closure of entire hospitals.

    When:

    Media Conference at Queen's Park: Monday February 22, 2010, 10am

    Plus Media Conferences and Scheduled Interviews to Announce the Plans
    across Ontario

    Where:

    Media Studio, Queen's Park, Main Legislative Building, Toronto
