Windsor-area LHIN in line to receive 60 patients from Toronto, according to primary care doctors

A London alliance of primary care doctors says up to 60 patients from the Toronto area are expected to be transferred to the Windsor and Chatham area this week to help with the crush of patients from the third COVID-19 wave in the GTA 

An internal memo by the London Middlesex Primary Care Alliance say that the Windsor region can expect 60 of 100 patients being transferred from Trillium Health Care in Toronto. The other 40 are heading to the London area.

But Windsor Regional Hospital says it is unaware of any such plan and called the memo inaccurate.

There are currently five patients in WRH transferred from the Greater Toronto Area with three in the ICU.

CBC has also reached out the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network.

The memo indicates there are up to 60 patients headed to the LHIN area, which includes Chatham and Sarnia.

Patients coming to Windsor area will vary from having COVID-19 to not having the virus and also differ in severity of care. 

The memo says many will have to be accommodated in hospitals in the region.
