ELGIN ST. THOMAS, OXFORD COUNTY HEALTH UNITS MERGER TAKES NEXT STEP 1/12/2018 11:16:34 AM
The Elgin St. Thomas and Oxford County boards have approved the next steps in the health unit merger process. The Counties have agreed and proposed that the new name for the board be called "The Board of Health for the Oxford - Elgin - St. Thomas Health Unit."
Also included in the submission they included that as the name states the Health Unit would serve Oxford and Elgin County as well as the City of St. Thomas.
Elgin St. Thomas Board of Health Chair Bernie Wiehle says the new Health Unit will have new board members.
The intent to merge Health Units was first announced back in November. The anticipated merger date is set for May 1, 2018 pending Ministry approval.
