Clear need for a hospital here

Oceanside seniors don't need to line the hallways at NRGH

I work at the hospital in Nanaimo. I learned through my supervisor last week that on January 20, Nanaimo Regional General Hospital reached record high numbers of patients. Patients lined the hallways on several floors and in emergency. Adult patients were sleeping on the paediatrics ward.

This is a clear show of the need for a hospital in Parksville-Qualicum. We need the services of a hospital not just doctor’s offices. NRGH and its staff and patients need relief that a hospital in Parksville-Qualicum can offer.

Wake up to the needs of your constituents, Ron Cantelon!
