Hospital board pair back

The man who has the top seat at the regional hospital district board will stay right where he is.

The Comox-Strathcona Regional Hospital District (CSRHD) board of directors chose Campbell River Mayor Charlie Cornfield as its chair Thursday, while Courtenay Mayor Greg Phelps was chosen vice-chair.

“The coming year promises to be one of great importance in the area of health care for our region,” Cornfield — who has chaired the CSRHD board since 2009 — said in a press release. “The Vancouver Island Health Authority has moved forward on a selection for the site of a new Comox Valley hospital, and the business case for that hospital and the planned new hospital in Campbell River — together known as the North Island Hospitals Project — will be in front of the province, hopefully later this year. I look forward to working with the vice-chair and the board as we move through this important project.”

In addition to the North Island Hospitals Project, the CSRHD board also will continue dealing with the general issues around health-care facilities in the region.

The CSRHD next meets March 3 at 10:30 a.m. at the Maritime Heritage Centre in Campbell River and March 17 at 10:30 a.m. at the Comox Valley Regional District board room in Courtenay.
