Take back ownership of the Ashcroft hospital

Author says put the regional hospital funds to good use.

Dear Editor

It seems to me that Interior Health is determined to shut down our Hospital here in Ashcroft.

Well, why don’t we opt out? Enough is enough. I. H. is big and big always wants more as in $$$$.

Sometimes smaller is better to manage a business and our hospital is a business. Let our own Regional District take those funds that are allocated to I.H. so we could better manage OUR hospital.

We have a great staff of Doctors, Nurses and support personnel.

We have intelligent and dedicated people on our Regional District and our various town councils.

Give it some thought–there must be a way to better serve our district with our health tax dollars.

Never say no.
