Gill: Hospital and City Working to Save Senior Clinic
Despite the recent and sudden closure of the Senior Wellness Clinic this week, Republican Mayoral candidate John Gill is pleased to see the two entities recognizing the need for the clinic to remain open.
“While this may seem to be a small service to some, it is important to our seniors. I am encouraged by Mr. Barwis’ initiative to engage the city in discussions to resume the services provided by the wellness clinic. ” Gill said.
Earlier this week Gill had raised this issue citing the failure of the City to respond to this situation. “The lesson learned here, I hope, is that the City must stay in touch with the hospital routinely to assure continued services for our seniors such as these. Perhaps a liaison position needs to be created either through the Bristol Burlington Board of Health or our elected officials.” Gill suggested.
