The Ontario Nurses' Association  urges the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care to reject the sale of Shouldice to Centric Health Corporation, a TSX-listed for-profit company controlled by U.S.-based Global Healthcare Investments & Solutions. The unique historical circumstances that allowed Shouldice to be grandfathered to operate in Ontario should cease and not be carried on through this sale to the detriment of our public health care system.
