Grey Bruce Health Services Pledges $10,000 to Support SWIFT

For the SWIFT Project, this week started on a high note and ended on an even higher one. The #ConnectedCounty discussion in Grey County was lead by IT Director, Geoff Hogan, at the beginning of the week. The discussion focused on how to best develop fibre-connectivity throughout the county. 

The week ended with the announcement that Grey Bruce Health Services pledged $10,000 to support the SWIFT Project! “As a health care provider in the Grey-Bruce region, we believe the SWIFT project is critical to our region’s economic vitality and social well-being,” said Grey Bruce Health Services President and CEO Lance Thurston. “Our current connectivity is limited, which limits our ability to take advantages of the opportunities offered by modern technology. The successful implementation of the SWIFT project would support innovation in the delivery of local health care, increase community access to online services for healthcare and help us sustain a quality and balanced work-life for our staff.”

“We’re extremely pleased to have the support of Grey Bruce Health Services,” said SWIFT Initiative Chair Duncan McKinlay. “Health care service providers are critical users of broadband technology and vital pillars of our communities, so the support of partners like Grey Bruce Health Services is a great indicator of the importance and impact of what the SWIFT project will accomplish.”
