BELLEVILLE – The Madoc branch of the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit [2] is closing Dec. 18, but a representative insists that services won’t be lost as a result.

The office, which serves Centre Hastings [3] residents living in Madoc, Marmora, Stirling and Tweed, covers everything from well water testing to flu vaccines.

Janet Moorhead-Cassidy, the health unit’s director of health promotion, said the office’s closure has been a slow process.

She said ultimately, the branch is closing because the lease is up.
