Site Features

See this page for more about this site including its features.

Northumberland Medical Arts Inc. (NMAI) have launched a new web site to provide information about their new Northumberland Medical Arts Centre (NMAC) – planned to be built on Hospital land.   Although the site - which has been online for only a few days - provides a good amount of information, it does not mention the request for a waiver of fees from the Town of Cobourg. This contentious issue faces a (presumably) final vote at Council’s meeting on December 21.  The site provides information on who owns it, who will occupy the building, the process of getting permits, progress to date and some information on funding.  Most of the detailed information is in pdfs with links on their documents page. 

The new NMAC web site is here. The main group occupying the building is the Northumberland Family Health Team (NFHT) who have their own web site here (active for over four years).  They consist of 21 doctors currently at:

  • Cobourg Clinic on University Ave,
  • Cobourg Medical Centre on Burnham Street,
  • Cobourg Health Centre on King Street East,

Plus

“… 17 allied health care professionals (nurse practitioners, registered nurses, dietitians, an occupational therapist, a physiotherapist, a respiratory therapist, a chiropodist, a social worker, a mental health clinician, a pharmacist, and a health educator) along with their support and management team” who “…  rent space in Northumberland Mall.”

“Other tenants of the NMAC include a small pharmacy/dispensary, laboratory, dental clinic, audiology clinic, a physiotherapy clinic and offices earmarked for acupuncture and midwife services.”

There is no information about the results of the Request for Tenders - that is, did the bids come in at the price they expected. However, they only closed December 1st so it's no doubt too early to make this information public.

The hope of NMAI is that the new site will provide factual information on this issue to people in Cobourg.
