Regional hospital district returns chair and vice-chair to positions

The Comox-Strathcona Regional Hospital District (CSRHD) board of directors has chosen Claire Moglove as its chair and Bruce Jolliffe as its vice-chair for the second year in a row.

In addition to the major project for the two new North Island hospitals, the board will continue dealing with general issues around health care facilities in the region.

Moglove is a councillor in Campbell River and a director of the Strathcona Regional District. Jolliffe is the Comox Valley Regional District’s representative from Baynes Sound-Denman/Hornby Islands (Area A).

The CSRHD provides capital funding, cost-shared with the provincial government on a 60/40 basis, with the hospital district portion being 40 per cent.

The CSRHD funds Campbell River and District General Hospital, St. Joseph's General Hospital, Cumberland Regional Hospital Laundry Society, Gold River Health Clinic, Sayward Primary Medical Health Care Clinic, Zeballos Health Clinic and health centres on Cortes Island and in Kyuquot and Tahsis.
