Stay healthy

After reading in this mornings paper (SP Jan. 12/12) the Conference Board of Canada's forecast for our continued growth, I read the article on hospitals and patient care. While I followed with interest the development of the city's infrastructure and amenities, it didn't cross my mind that our medicare services were not keeping pace with our population growth.

With the exception of City Hospital, our two other facilities are antiquated and in need of major repairs and up-grades. Although the province is trying to get a handle on patient wait lists, it will still need to deal with the old facilities and issues around staffing. I hope they won't wait until we hit the wall.
