An adequate and functional hospital should be the cornerstone of our community infrastructure and would help us retain our medical professionals in this community and attract others that are needed.

During a recent brief stay in Cariboo Memorial Hospital, I found the facility extremely cold and drafty. It was not clear whether it was a result of a dysfunction of the heat system, or just an old system in a very old building.

I’m sure there have been many others who have also experienced this type of discomfort in the current facility.

The nursing staff was excellent as always and did their best to mitigate the problem.

The purpose of this letter is to encourage the citizens of Williams Lake and area to insist that Interior Health and the Ministry of Health work together to begin to implement the Cariboo Memorial Hospital Redevelopment Plan immediately.
