Ontario March of Dimes’ outreach medical services are getting a $45,805 boost from the province.

The March of Dimes' Northern Medical Clinics provide an essential service and rely on specialists who volunteer to travel to communities across Northern Ontario providing consultation, assessment and surgery follow up care to residents, said Sudbury MPP Rick Bartolucci.

“Northerners have benefited greatly from the quality care these outreach clinics provide to remote communities,” said Bartolucci.

“This investment helps to ensure residents get the care they need in their own communities and minimizes their need to travel and incur costs for doing so.”

The Ontario March of Dimes Northern Medical Clinics has access to specialists for spines, hips and knees, paediatric orthopaedics, rheumatology, and upper extremities provide care to residents in Northern Ontario.

The March of Dimes is a rehabilitation and advocacy charity for people with physical disabilities. They provide a wide array of services and programs across Northern Ontario.

“We are very pleased with the continued funding provided to our Northern Medical Clinics programs. It is a long-standing donor-dollar program that March of Dimes has offered benefiting an average of 1,400 Northern residents annually,” said Deanna Chisholm-Tullio, Regional Independent Living manager for the Northeast region.

“We are grateful to the wonderful team of dedicated volunteer surgeons and specialist who are key to the programs success.”
