Mayor Aitchison to remain in medical care pending bypass surgery


On July 31, the Town of Huntsville notified residents of Mayor Aitchison’s medical diagnose and coronary angiogram procedure scheduled at South Lake Regional Health Care earlier today. Results of the procedure have indicated that Mayor Aitchison requires bypass surgery and will remain in medical care until surgery is scheduled at a later date.

“First and foremost we are just happy that the Mayor is in good hands and that he is receiving the very best medical care. All of Council and Staff are here to support the Mayor during this time,” said Deputy Mayor Karin Terziano.

The Town of Huntsville will continue to keep residents informed.

  6. Hi Mr. Mayor, Been where you are, and done that. They take good care of you down there, – for sure. They also give you a stuffed toy heart to take to bed with you. Best advice? Don’t misplace it, – it will be your very best friend. Just give it a good hard squeeze when needed, and it will help you through all this. Believe me, being a Mayor is harder than going through this procedure.
    Be good and take care.

    Wishing the Mayor a quick recovery and I am sure he will learn a great deal about a large regional hospital. Anywhere in Muskoka would be closer. Of course within the Huntsville boundaries would be best.
