As learned at CHIP 101.9 last week (Thursday afternoon), the CISSSO found a solution to the potential four-week interruption of service in obstetrics at the Shawville Hospital. A team of midwifery will provide the establishment to continue to offer obstetric services for the month of August. However, an exception to this solution is a two day interruption in the obstetrics wing that is scheduled for next week or August 03-04. In an interview with CHIP 101.9, the Pontiac MNA, André Fortin, said that he was satisfied with the solution that had been found to avoid the month long break in service, but believes that the break at the beginning of August is still unacceptable and solutions will have to be found.
