Merger Of CK And Lambton Health Units To Be Examined – CKXS FM

Health board officials are examining the possibility of merging public health units in Chatham-Kent and Sarnia-Lambton.

The boards of health for Chatham-Kent Public Health (CKPH) and Lambton Public Health (LPH) said they intend to explore the opportunities and impacts that a voluntary merger would have on their respective communities.

CKPH Board of Health Chair and CK Councillor Brock McGregor said while the discussions are in their infancy, the priority for both boards is to maintain and improve the public health services local communities rely on.

“We’re very much in the early days in looking at going through this process,” he said. “It feels natural to explore some opportunities with Lambton [Public Health], we have existing partnerships, a shared school board, [and] we both neighbour the First Nations community of Walpole Island.”
