An Orillia woman is preparing to make an appearance before the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal after filing a complaint against Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH).

Melissa McKee will head to Toronto Aug. 30 for a three-hour mediation/adjudication hearing at the Social Justice Tribunals Ontario/Ontario Rights Tribunal of Ontario in Toronto. The main issue for McKee is the way OSMH’s emergency department announces patients’ last names in the wait room.
