Creeping hospital privatization -- one more step

Bluewater Health hospital in Sarnia is reducing the laboratory tests it does for outpatients. The Observer reports that as of April 1, hospital lab services in Sarnia will only be available for outpatients that require testing for cancer care, dialysis, or an emergency.  Most will have to go to for-profit labs instead.


Arlene Patterson, president of the Sarnia-Lambton Health Coalition, said the move is a budget-saving exercise and another step into the privatization of health care.

  1. Thanks for keeping us informed Doug, we need to put and end to the madness. When is it going to stop?
