CGMH to close temporary AHF at the Collingwood Legion

Since the early days of the pandemic, CGMH has been very fortunate to have an excellent partnership with the Collingwood Legion and is grateful for the opportunity to have operated a temporary Alternate Health Facility (AHF) in the space, since December 2020.

However, following a review of the AHF utilization, effective September 1, 2021, CGMH will cease transferring patients to the AHF and the care of any remaining patients at the AHF will be transitioned back to the main CGMH site by September 10, 2021. As the economy continues with its reopening, the Collingwood Legion is looking to resume regular operations, and the hospital's lease is expiring on September 30th.

"CGMH recognizes the impact of the pandemic on our team and resulting challenges with Health Human Resources. The opportunity to move valued team members back to the main site will provide some support in alleviating this issue. We look forward to their continuation as part of the CGMH team," says Norah Holder, CGMH President and CEO, adding that, "operating the AHF was a tremendous team effort and we would like to thank all team members that were involved."

CGMH would like to thank all of our community partners who provided input into the process of making the Legion a successful place to provide safe and effective patient care.
