Memorial Hospital Emergency Department in recent weeks. MODG Warden Vernon Pitts told media after the regular council meeting on Wednesday afternoon, that the MODG had put up a $100,000 incentive for new doctors in Guysborough and the onus is on the province to find a fruitful way to attract doctors to rural areas like Guysborough.
