Tecumseh Would Welcome New Hospital

Town of Tecumseh Mayor Gary McNamara, January 14, 2014.

Tecumseh’s mayor says his community would love to host a new acute care hospital.

The site for the new hospital is expected to be chosen this year.

Last year, hospital officials admitted the facility did not have to be inside Windsor city limits and Gary McNamara believes there’s a good case to be made for locating it in Tecumseh. “With growth, we’re kind of in the centre,” he says citing projections for future growth in Windsor-Essex. “That Belle River corridor, from LaSalle up to County Road 42 and those areas, that’s the growth areas, and that’s why we think we’re well placed for hosting this hospital.”

McNamara thinks it’s also a good spot for patients coming from Chatham-Kent and Sarnia-Lambton.
