The Englehart and District Hospital recently commissioned a feasibility study to determine a business case for a new Long Term Care facility in our area. The plan is to build on the existing services available at the hospital site and integrate these with the new facility. In this early study, the facility is expected to have 64 Long Term Beds and cost approximately $15,932,681 with part of the funding coming from the local municipalities including Charlton and Dack. Based on this preliminary study the municipal taxpayer implication is expected to be annually from $15,198 to $26,632 or between $22.65 to $39.69 a person. Council is being asked to review this proposal and if you are interested in seeing a full copy of the presentation from the Community meeting please click here.
