    Labrador-Grenfell Health is trying to allay concerns about potential changes at the hospital in St. Anthony.

    The health authority says there are no plans to close or convert acute care beds to long-term care beds, and there is no plan for men and women to share rooms on the Maternity Ward.

    It also says that while they are continually trying to find efficiencies, there are no layoffs planned at the hospital.

    Labrador-Grenfell Helath says the $2.3-million announced last spring has not been reallocated elsewhere.

    The health authority says it has been working with the town and the office of public engagement to plan a health forum for members of the community to participate in discussions regarding helath care concerns.

    It says any change in operations or services will be done through discussion and consultations with doctors, staff and the public in conjunction with the Department of Health.
