The head of Bruyère Continuing Care has stepped down from his $337,000-a-year job, a move the hospital’s board says is needed as the organization heads into belt-tightening times. The looming period of austerity could have the biggest impact on the 30,000 Ontario seniors and hospital patients who are on waiting lists for acute-care beds, nursing home beds or home-care services.
