Hospital officials say “significant progress” has been made at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance, exactly one year after an Investigator’s Report was filed with the province.

CKHA officials say on August 8, 2016 Bonnie Adamson, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) appointed Investigator, submitted her report to the Minster on her team’s findings into a review of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA).

“In the year since, significant progress has been made on her findings,” CKHA officials said in a press release.

Hospital staff also provided a brief summary, which “provides a high-level update on the organization’s actions and progress in the year since the Investigator’s report was submitted to the MOHLTC,” CKHA officials stated.

After a two-month long investigation, Adamson blasted the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) leadership in her final report.

Adamson concluded that a supervisor should be appointed to the CKHA to “restore robust governance and administrative/clinical leadership to ensure sustainable and appropriate oversight of patient care and financial management.”

Her findings, which are detailed in the report, says the CKHA leadership and two Chatham boards have not acted in “good faith” nor have they used their best efforts to explore go forward options for reconciliation.
