To commemorate Canada’s sesquicentennial and Guelph’s 190th anniversary, Guelph Museums and the University of Guelph have teamed up to present This Day in Guelph, Ontario, Canada History – Old news gets a modern twist as we revisit news stories from the past 150 years.

“No more treks to Kitchener, great relief for 12 patients”. The Guelph Mercury reported that the Ministry of Health will financially support the renovation of part of the Delhi Street Medical Centre into a dialysis unit. This unit will be located at the Guelph General Hospital and it plans to have six machines that can accommodate their patients. This creates “immense relief” for the twelve patients of the Delhi Street Medical Centre who have to “trek” to Kitchener to receive kidney dialysis.
