Mayor says don’t merge Algoma Public Health with Sudbury health unit

The possibility that Algoma Public Health could be merged with the Sudbury and District Health Unit is not sitting well with the mayor of Elliot Lake.  The concept is a recommendation from a consultant overseeing the re-organization of Algoma Public Health.  But Mayor Dan Marchisella says the health minister should prepare for a fight if the merger idea gains steam.

Marchisella says all the mayors in Algoma oppose the suggestion.  He says a big reason is because services would mostly likely be centralized in Sudbury.  He’s adds a super large health unit would have a hard time delivering services to smaller communities where needs and demographics differ.
