Alberton Health Care???


On Saturday evening 18th September 2022, we drove through the Town of Alberton. I noticed a large new building in the process of being completed. It is apparently the newly proposed Medical Home. It would be no more than 5-10 minutes’ walk from the Western Hospital. Presently, the hospital emergency rooms are closed, not planning to reopen until November. The reason for the closure, staff shortages. That struck me as a serious issue. If the hospital is short staffed where will the government get staff for this new Medical Home? Seems to me the answer is obvious, when the medical home opens the hospital closes. I could be wrong of course! But I think it’s very possible the town will gain a medical home and lose a hospital. Only time will tell, nevertheless a sneaky way to close a hospital, if that is the outcome. I note in the Tuesday Guardian that Dr Garnham referred the hospital as more of a clinic. With remarks like that one might assume this is already a done deal? The area will go from 24/7 health care to 9/5 walk in Medical home!!!!!
