Four Bruce County Senior Employees Suspended

Bruce County | by Robyn Garvey  

County CAO, Director of Human Resources, Director of Health Services and the Administrator at Brucelea Haven suspended.

Four senior Bruce County administrators have been suspended.

Bruce County has informed employees its Chief Administrative Officer, Director of Human Resources and Director of Health Services, as well as the Administrator at Brucelea Haven have been suspended from their employment with pay.

No reasons have been given for the suspensions, but they appear related to compliance issues at Brucelea Haven.

The suspensions took effect September 5th.

Due to privacy concerns relating to this decision, Warden Mitch Twolan says the County will not be releasing comment at this time. 

He says they are still working out the details and more information will be released next week.

All of this comes after the Bruce County Homes Committee met behind closed doors for an estimated three hours on Thursday.

The two consultants hired by county to study the problems at Brucelea Haven were on hand to present their first reports.

Admissions to Brucelea Haven have been halted since July after a Ministry of Health report found the long term care home not in compliance with more than 30 requirements.

Meantime, three emergency Town hall style meetings are taking place today for employees only.  

Discussions at these meetings will include operational changes within Brucelea Haven.

The first meeting took place at 11 am, the second one will take place at 3:45 pm and the third at 10:10 pm.

Again these meetings are for employees only, not the general public.

Editor's note: This story was updated from an earlier version to clarify it is four Bruce County employees suspended, not four senior employees at Brucelea Haven. Three are senior administrators at the county, one is the administrator at Brucelea Haven.
