ORNGE members focus on what they do best

The past few months have been a paradox of uncertainty and revelation for members at ORNGE.

After months of financial questions and reports of exorbitant salaries at ORNGE, Ontario's air ambulance system, Provincial Health Minister Deb Matthews has appointed Deputy Minister of Government Services Ron McKerlie as interim president and CEO.

The entire board of directors at the agency is to be replaced and executives from all of the for-profit companies (ORNGE Peel, ORNGE Global Air and ORNGE Global Real Estate) have been told that their services are no longer required.

The CAW National office has been closely following the events at ORNGE and has requested a meeting with  Minister Matthews, to determine the direction that she intends to proceed.

While the government has demanded transparency and accountability at ORNGE, it is clear that through these trying times, the membership of ORNGE will continue to focus on what they do best;  providing the highest level of patient care in Ontario.
