To remake itself over the next decade, Scarborough Health Network wants to rebuild and expand at least one of its three campuses while one or two of the others are sold off.
Many people supporting Scarborough’s Birchmount hospital campus — “the Grace,” to those who work there or live in Agincourt — don’t believe the Scarborough Health Network’s (SHN) promises about the future.

A community campaign is forming against closure of obstetrics and pediatrics wards at Scarborough Health Network’s Birchmount site, as Agincourt residents, doctors and other medical staff look to the province to intervene.
A long-standing divide over hospital care in Scarborough just got worse.
Women’s and children’s services at Scarborough Health Network’s Birchmount campus will close, the hospital’s board decided on Thursday, Jan. 24.

Casino shuttles parked near malls and plazas are being targeted by a Scarborough councillor who says they pose a safety hazard.
Jim Karygiannis says he’s asking companies to keep tour buses off residential streets in his Scarborough-Agincourt ward.
That includes Bonis Avenue beside Agincourt Mall, Redlea Avenue near Splendid China and Bamburgh Circle near a commercial plaza at Warden and Steeles avenues.
“On one hour on Bonis you will probably find three or four buses,” Karygiannis told Scarborough Community Council on Jan. 15.
“I’m asking: please find other places.”
Companies which operate the shuttles seven days a week started stopping on Bonis, and then approached Agincourt Mall about using its parking areas, said Steve Bishop, vice president of development services for the mall’s owner, North American Development Group.
Last fall, after a year or two of complaints from customers, tenants and residents about their presence, the mall told companies their buses were no longer welcome.
“We were concerned about liability,” Bishop added.
The shuttles, however, went back to picking up and dropping off passengers on Bonis, sometimes “right in front” of a crosswalk close to the Agincourt Public Library, Paul McKinlay, who lives nearby, told Scarborough councillors.
“They’re just using it as a cheap bus terminal,” he added.
