About

WE ARE A GROUP OF CONCERNED CITIZENS ADVOCATING FOR THE PRESERVATION, PROTECTION AND ENHANCEMENT OF SERVICES AT TMH

In April 1998 the four hospitals of the Quinte region – Belleville, Bancroft, Picton and Trenton – were merged into the single organization known as Quinte Health Care (QHC).In 1999 a new wing was added to TMH that added an additional 175 beds to our community hospital and 44 patient care rooms.

In 2008 TMH had 14 Physicians, 113 Full time staff, 111 Part time staff, 18 Casual and 8 Temporary staff with over 230 volunteers.

In 2009 TMH lost 30 Acute Care Beds, 4 Special Care beds, and 6 Surgical Care beds. Later in 2009 the QHC Board of Directors was fired and a new board was recruited with no municipal or Auxiliary representatives there to ensure full and complete representation from the various communities under the umbrella of QHC.

Since 2009 TMH has consistently, persistently, and continuously seen its services and role whittled down. Our TMH fears that if we do not continue our efforts that the LHIN and QHC will:

  • Eventually turn TMH ER into an “Urgent Care” facility only open 16 hrs per day, 5 days a week
  • Have all Ambulatory services directed to Belleville General Hospital (BGH)
  • Eliminate the In-Patient Unit
  • Move CT Scan to BGH
STAND UP, SPEAK UP, RAISE YOUR VOICE IN SUPPORT OF YOUR COMMUNITY HOSPITAL!
