Town Residents’ Association AGM Tuesday

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the meeting starting at 7 p.m.

The Annual General Meeting of the Comox Town Residents Association is on Tuesday, April 28 at the United Church Hall, 250 Beach Drive, Comox.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the meeting starting at 7 p.m. Jane Murphy, President & CEO of St. Joseph’s Hospital and Patti Fletcher, St. Joseph’s Hospital Board Vice-Chair, will discuss one of the big issues facing Comox: The Future Role of St. Joseph’s Hospital.

They will also provide information on the new North Island Hospitals.

When the new Comox Valley Hospital is completed in 2017, it will take over the acute services.

This is a big change and St. Joseph’s is examining the needs of the community to see how they can continue to provide non-hospital based health and seniors’ care services. The pre sentation will look at the challenges of creating a sustainable health care system and provide examples of innovative ideas to meet the needs of the community using existing resources.

The North Island Hospitals Project is the development of two new hospitals to serve the North Island; one in Campbell River and one in the Comox Valley. Slated to open in late 2017, these facilities will provide acute care services for decades to come. Island Health is using evidence-based design and engaging clinicians and physicians in the development of these hospitals to create the best possible environment for patients and families. Some examples of this design will be shared.

This meeting is also an opportunity for you to bring up an issue, nominate a director for the board and learn more about the Comox Town Residents Association.

Refreshments will be served.
