MAHC is inviting the communities we serve to join us for a collaborative exchange of ideas to continue to shape the future of our local regional, multi-site hospital system.

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) is announcing a series of community engagement sessions designed to gather valuable input and foster a collaborative dialogue about the proposed multi-site regional hospital capital redevelopment project. These interactive sessions will be held at both hospitals on June 5, 6, 7, and 8, 2024. Additionally, a survey will be available for those unable to attend in person.
