Nobody can say Robert Biron didn’t know what he was getting into.
The former CEO of Cobourg’s Northumberland Hills Hospital has come to the big city, the next in line to take on the seemingly impossible task of fixing The Scarborough Hospital.
The good news is, unlike many of his counterparts at other hospitals, Biron will release the full details of $18 million in financial measures the hospital plans to implement to balance the budget.
The bad news is The Scarborough Hospital is still facing $18 million in cuts and fee hikes.
Biron is suggesting that there might yet be some flexibility in how the hospital tackles its deficit, telling The Toronto Star that “my first priority as we move forward is to reach out to these key stakeholders and hear about their concerns and suggestions about how we might move forward together to redefine health care delivery in Scarborough.”
