One more bed?

Dear Editor:

Re: Not Big Enough, June 30.

This letter brought into clear focus the “something” which had been bothering me about your June 23 article. A quick re-read indeed revealed the current Groves Hospital has 44 beds. The new one will have 45. So ... one more bed since 1980!

While all the much-needed new services and facilities are eagerly awaited, Mr. Hobson has made a salient point. Fergus is growing. There are at least three sizeable subdivisions under construction now. All around the area new housing is springing up. More homes equal more people.

Oakville used the same company. They built to include the future population. Considering building costs and inevitable needs, would it not be prudent (and much more cost effective) to consider, or re-consider the available beds issue?

Is one more bed acceptable?

Is it reasonable?


Patricia Fimio, ERIN
