Hospital hub and long-term care among UCPR council health highlights

United Counties of Prescott and Russell council had a few health-related items on the agenda when it met on March 27.

Health Hub

Council approved a by-law endorsing collaboration with the Hawkesbury General Hospital as a partner in the Local Health Hub project.  The plan is to establish better mental health and addiction services, geriatric care, and paramedic services in the community.

Support for Séguin

The Centre d’accueil Roger-Séguin long-term care facility in Clarence Creek requested a $1.9-million contribution from the counties towards its $35-million reconstruction project.  Council had already authorized $250,000 for the facility in the 2019 budget and no further contribution was approved.

Clarence-Rockland Mayor Guy Desjardins noted the success of the recent radio-telethon for the Centre d’accueil Roger-Séguin, which raised more than $500,000.

Agreement renewed

Council approved the renewal of the Long-Term Care Home Service Accountability Agreement for the Prescott-Russell Residence with the Champlain Local Health Integration Network.  The new agreement is in effect until 2022.
