Why does the Downtown Mission support the new Windsor-Essex Hospitals System?  In a recent letter to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Dr. Eric Hoskins, CEO/Executive Director, Ron Dunn explains the vulnerable citizens served at the Downtown Mission need this SYSTEM.

“If the plan consisted of just one element, the new hospital to replace both acute care sites (Windsor Regional Hospital’s current Metropolitan and Ouellette campuses), I would question whether it would meet the needs of citizens throughout Windsor, in particular those we see at The Downtown Mission each and every day, who represent some of our community’s most vulnerable and marginalized individuals.

I was delighted to learn that the project entails so much more than just a fancy new acute care site. According to the extensive materials posted at windsorhospitals.ca, the project identifies some $300 million in investment to the city’s core, which represents much needed new health care infrastructure.”
