Protecting healthcare in the Almaguin Highlands​

In 2009, the majority of services provided at the Burk's Falls Health Centre were removed as part of budget cuts of Muskoka Algonquin Health Care. This effectively left the entire Almaguin Highlands region desperately short of proper healthcare...and this problem continues to this day.  

The Almaguin Highlands Health Centre Committee has several identified focus areas aligned with the current municipal council timelines (2018 through 2022). These are summarized as:

Communicating the specific needs for healthcare across the Almaguin Highlands region through an Ontario Health Team (OHT) application which supports all residents of the region;

Ensuring we are prepared for the future of healthcare delivery through provision of high-speed connectivity for every resident of the Almaguin Highlands;

Ensuring that we attract and retain the healthcare professionals we require to deliver excellent healthcare to the region;

Developing strategic health care planning, with a regional view, to restructure and build a responsive system that meets the needs of our residents, supports our care providers, and improves health outcomes
