Campbell River will be at its existing location.
Isn't the new Comox Valley location at a higher point than the old location?
it will be built right beside north island college, near the equatic center, and across
the street from home depot.
close to ryan road and lerwick
Huh. My question is, "Are there enough employee's for the hospitals
that currently exist, before adding two more hospitals?"
Seriously, the issue out here is that we don't have enough staff for the
facilities that currently exist, let alone any new ones (like a Children's
Hospital proposed to open in Saskatoon eventually). South Africa &
the Philippines can only ship out just so medical professionals at any
given time, with shortfalls being filled by India....but even that is not
enough to have full staffing with the current facilities.
So they're moving staff from the old one to the new ones? Cool.
Out here, we have a shortage of Doctors, Nurses, etc....and they
just laugh in frustration when a new hospital is proposed for
political purposes....as it would just be another building
without staff, 'cuz there just isn't enough for the current facilities
even. Too little stretched way too thin as it is.
yes, it probably is, close to crown isle. That whole area, around the intersection of lerwick
and ryan is high, then it starts downward again, once you pass crown isle, going east toward
The last site they wanted to use was along ryan past crown isle, but on the other
side of ryan road, not quite as high as the existing site, but it was 'inside' the
flight zone for the military, and they wouldn't allow the structures that would
be higher than they would allow, towers etc.
I guess the existing building site is 'just' outside the flight zone, because it is
less than a mile from the last choice.
Yes, both communities have old existing hospitals.
The debate around here for years has been whether to have two hospitals or one large regional hospital. That might have been better for Courtenay-Comox but very bad for Campbell River. It's difficult to market yourself for retirees when they have to commute for hospital services. Today's decision is one that we have been hoping for, way too long.
OK, that makes sense. I was thinking Mazda was more into central Courtenay.
