Tottenham Medical Lab Now Open

 Health

(January 6, 2011 - Report to the Community) I have good news to report.  As promised, the Tottenham medical laboratory is now re-opened and serving the community.  The new Gamma-Dynacare mobile site re-opened yesterday at 119 Queen Street North in the basement.  Hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8am to 1pm.  You must make an appointment. Patients can call Gamma-Dynacare at 1-800-668-2714 extension 5751 or 905-790-3515 ext. 5751 and speak with a mobile service coordinator to schedule an appointment.

This re-opening is the result of a persistent and coordinated effort over the past four months to restore these services and ensure that the people of our riding have timely access to health services that are close to home.  I want to thank Gamma-Dynacare for being exemplary corporate citizens and for their strong commitment to the people of Tottenham and surrounding area.

I can't tell you how important your support was in this effort.  To date, more than 3,282 people in Simcoe-Grey have signed the lab petition.  That allowed me the opportunity stand up 18 times in the Ontario Legislature on 18 different occasions.  For the people who called my office, sent me emails or saw me on the street, let me tell you that your stories helped too.  This information allowed me to make our case to anyone and everyone who would listen.  It was a big help.

I will continue to work hard to re-open the labs in Stayner and Elmvale and I'll be keeping a close eye on the LifeLabs Alliston location.  I encourage you to keep me informed of your experiences.The new Tottenham mobile lab is a solution for people who can't wait hours for care, and who have difficulty travelling to either Bolton or Alliston for needed tests.  It is setup to provide elderly patients and those in need of priority care with the help they need.

Thank you again for your tremendous support.

Sincerely,

Jim Wilson, MPP
