Hospital project urgent
In my opinion there are two important things that the government and every citizen should focus on: health care and education. Today my focus is on health care. We cannot put our health on the back burner and therefor we can not put our health care services on the back burner.
It is hard to believe that PRH has not received an expansion since 1951, with the growth of population and the advances in the medical field. We are talking about a place were lives get saved every day. Should that not be a priority to everyone?
To me the hospital is the heart of the town. Babies are born there and people’s lives get saved. We are fortunate to have exceptional medical professionals in this area, but how can they do a good job when the essential resources are not in place? This town has grown substantially, the population is aging rapidly, people live longer and the current hospital structure cannot keep up with the growing demand. We are going to get into a serious crunch if not a disaster if we don’t get this hospital expansion soon.
Why do we need to beg for a basic, crucial service? Isn’t that what we pay taxes for? I urge our government to take action sooner rather than later. The people of this region desperately need this expansion. Please, let’s make it happen.
