Kemptville District Hospital Chief Executive Officer Frank Vassalo says he’s proud of all the work that went into North Grenville’s COVID-19 Assessment Centre.
Staff members have announced that the facility, located down the street from the hospital at the Kemptville Campus, is closing its doors in a few weeks.
“I’d like to thank Dr. Suzanne Rutherford [the Assessment Centre’s Clinical Lead] for her excellent leadership in developing and operating, with her team, the Assessment Centre and Vaccination Site,” Vassalo says. “I’d also like to recognize our MPP Steve Clark and Mayor Nancy Peckford, whose excellent advocacy in the early days of our efforts to establish a local assessment centre were vital to our cause.”
The Assessment Centre first opened in September of 2020, and was followed by a Vaccination Site at the Municipal Centre that ran from February 2021 to March 2022.
Staff members say that more than 33,000 COVID-19 tests were administered at the facility over the years. The last day it’ll be open is March 31st. If you want to get tested there before it closes, you can book an appointment on the Assessment Centre website.
