  1. OTHER BUSINESS

a) Base Hospital for Peel Regional Ambulance Services

Moved by Councillor Palleschi,
Seconded by Councillor Morrison;

Whereas medical oversight is a critical element of the Region of Peel Land Ambulance Program and is currently provided by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care Base Hospital program;

And further, the designation for a single Peel-Based hospital to fulfil this function will ensure a consistency of EMS delivery across the Region and reduce the costs of program administration and the need for ambulance operators to maintain separate staffing pools;

And further, as the William Osler Health Care Centre possesses the necessary staff and experience, and has indicated its interest in providing this service to Peel Region and is the only Peel based hospital currently serving in this role;

It is therefore recommended that the Minister of Health and Long Term Care be requested to select the William Osler Health Care Centre as the designated Base Hospital for Peel Regional Ambulance Services.
