Peterborough Health Coalition chairperson (and Council of Canadians Peterborough-Kawarthas chapter activist) Roy Brady plays a critical role as a watchdog over the operations of the Peterborough Regional Health Centre.
Peterborough This Week reports, "After an 18-month $91,000 search, the Peterborough Regional Health Centre has hired a new boss from within. Dr. Peter McLaughlin, who was named interim president and CEO following the departure of Ken Tremblay in November 2014, was selected to lead the hospital. Tremblay left shortly before the hospital’s board of directors announced that $57 million in funding had been set aside but not properly recorded via a series of 'accounting errors'."
When the issue of the $57 million first arose almost two years ago now, Brady stated, "This is supposed to be a community hospital. It has become less and less of a community hospital over the years. ...The figures are right there on a monthly basis. Did the board not see them? That's the question that needs to be asked."
