If you have questions about Brampton Civic Hospital, you’ll get your chance to ask them at an upcoming telephone town hall.

William Osler Health System (Osler) is inviting community members to participate in the upcoming event that will focus on the ongoing COVID-19 response, expansion of Osler’s Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness, and cancer care in Brampton, plus many more hospital updates.

The Telephone Town Hall will be held Tuesday, Oct. 5 from 7 to 8 p.m. and will also give participants an opportunity to ask questions of Osler’s senior leaders and provide feedback.

Hosted by Dr. Naveed Mohammad, Osler’s president and CEO, the live event will be moderated by Hema Ramlochan-Tuitt, a member of Osler’s Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC).

They will be joined by several Osler leaders, including Geoff Ritchie, chair of the Board of Directors; Kiki Ferrari, chief operating officer; Ann Ford, executive vice president, Strategy and Corporate Services; and Mary Jane McNally, chief Patient Experience Officer.

Brampton mayor Patrick Brown will also join as a special guest to engage with residents and their questions.

“Telephone Town Halls are a great way to engage in vital two-way communication with our community,” said Mohammad.

“During this session we will share important updates as we continue with our important COVID-19 recovery work, and look forward to the next steps of expansion of our Peel Memorial site, as well as for cancer care in Brampton.”

Ramlochan-Tuitt said she’s happy to be hosting the town hall for a second time.

“I believe active dialogue with health care leaders is important. Telephone Town Halls are a great way to feel connected to your community hospital, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Residents can pre-register online or by leaving a voicemail with their name and phone number at 905-494-2120 ext. 50200 before noon on Oct. 5.
