NEWSROOM@EAP.ON.CA PRESCOTT-RUSSELL HGH gets top rating
Chief of Staff Dr. Luc Chagnon. “We are extremely pleased with this result as we move ahead with our future redevelop- ment plans, knowing that staff is provid- ing the best care possible, with particular emphasis on compassion and respect,” adds HGH Chief Executive Officer Marc LeBoutillier. According to the same report, HGH is also ranked as one of the top five commu- nity hospitals in the province in terms of patient satisfaction for inpatient services. Glengarry Memorial Hospital in Alexan- dria was one of the best for emergency services. Part of a province-wide patient satisfac- tion data collection and reporting system, the NRCC surveys provides patient satis- faction data from acute care, emergency department, rehabilitation and maternity surveys. Lacelles and JeffWarnock were each deco- rated with the Emergency Medical Services Exemplary Service Medal of the Governor General of Canada . “I am extremely proud of our paramedics, their hard work and their dedication to the people of Prescott and Russell, as much those who were rec- ognized by the OAPC as all the men and women who serve or have served with zeal and efficiency,” Chrétien said. Created on July 7, 1994, the EmergencyMedical Ser- vices Exemplary Service Medal recognizes professionals who, in the provision of pre- hospital emergency medical services to the public, have performed their duties in an exemplary manner, one characterized by good conduct. Recipients must have completed 20 years of exemplary service, including 10 years in the performance of duties involving potential risk. “I am consistently impressed with the level of service extended by this depart- ment and the tenacity of our paramedics, notably in light of our vast, rural territory,” stated Prescott-Russell warden François St-Amour. “These eight employees are exceptionally deserving of this national honour.”
HAWKESBURY | The Hawkesbury and District General Hospital is one of the best in Ontario, according to a patient survey. The National Research Corporation- Picker Canada report of “Patient Ratings of Overall Satisfaction and Likelihood to Recommend for Ontario Hospitals,” has confirmed the hospital’s position as a top performer in the province. When asked the question “Would you recommend this hospital to others?”, HGH rated the highest among all community hospitals in Ontario, with 86.9 per cent of respon- dents saying “Yes” to that query. “This rat- ing is definite proof of the dedication of our staff in regards to patient care,” says

firstname.lastname@example.org ALEXANDRIA | Four community organiza- tions in North Glengarry emerged as the big winners in the recent ninth annual Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry Ontario Provincial Police golf tournament. Donations of $14,000 were handed out by the organizing committee, a partner- ship with the Centre de santé communau- taire de l’Estrie, Équipe psycho-sociale, Centre Culturel “Les trois petits points” and Club Richelieu Alexandria. For several years, the tournament’s major sponsor has been Caisse populaire de la Vallée. A sum of $4,000 was presented to the Jumpstart Foundation chapter which has worked closely with the Alexandria Ca- nadian Tire store in providing funding for Richard.email@example.com TORONTO | A year after being elected to Queen’s Park, Grant Crack is looking for- ward to an unexpected break from the confrontational atmosphere of Queen’s Park. With the legislative assembly being prorogued following Premier Dalton Mc- Guinty’s resignation, the Liberal Glen- garry-Prescott-Russell M.P.P. will havemore time to concentrate on local issues. “This gives me time to work in the riding,” says Crack, who succeeded veteran Jean-Marc Lalonde in the October 6, 2011 election. “It has been a steep learning curve,”concedes the former North Glengarry Township mayor. “It has been quite enjoyable. There are always challenges.” WhileMcGuinty has taken fire for abrupt- ly suspending debates in the legislature, Crack echoes the party line that the vitri- olic climate had become too unproduct- ive. “The most substantive bills have been passed,” said Crack. Yet he blamed the op- position for needlessly attempting to block
area youths requiring assistance to partici- pate in sports. Store owner Dennis Tallon stepped up to the plate and matched funds raised and more by adding $5,000 and the“Easy Cruis- ers Club of Alexandria” donated $1,000, making the grand total $10,000. Another $4,000 was given to Le Centre Culturel “Les trois petits points” which has hosted a talent contest for youth for sever- al years in the fall. A donation of $3,500 was made to the North Glengarry Sports Camp, permitting the purchase of sports equip- ment and the provision of various sports- related programs to local youths. The Alexandria Skate Team received $2,500 to complete Phase 2 of the Alexan- dria Skatepark. legislation. He cited the months of “stall- ing tactics” on the part of Conservatives before the government made the Eastern Ontario Development Fund a permanent program.“This create jobs. This has proven to be an excellent program,” said the M.P.P. The opposition contends that McGuinty is simply attempting to avoid further scrutiny over controversial issues such as the “Power Plant Fiasco.” New documents show that the Liberals cancelled the Mis- sissauga and Oakville gas-fired power plants for political gain, argues Stormont- Dundas-South Glengarry Conservative M.P.P. Jim McDonell. The prorogation killed the work of the finance committee which was tasked with investigating the decisions. “McGuinty couldn’t have chosen a better moment to resign. The house of cards he built around himself is collapsing, unable to resist the burden of accountability. Ontarians de- serve to know which leadership candi- dates knew of the cover-up and willingly participated in it. Just like McGuinty de- layed the release of the Drummond report until after the 2011 election, again he is trying to keep Ontarians in the dark until after the leadership convention. Ontarians deserve better,” says McDonell. McGuinty has maintained the prorogation is neces- sary for the government to work out an agreement with the public sector on the wage-freeze issue and to find a way to make the legislature work more smoothly after the Liberals have a new leader.
