A man instrumental in raising money for a new Markdale hospital is confident the hospital will be built. Grey Highlands council has heard concerns from citizens about what will happen to the 13 million dollars raised for the hospital if it’s not built. Doctor Hamilton Hall has chaired the fundraising committee since it started ten years ago. He says he met with provincial officials as recently as two weeks ago and was assured a new Markdale hospital is still under consideration. Doctor Hall says one of the strengths of the hospital bid is the strong community support. He suspects the approval for a new Markdale hospital may come during the provincial election campaign.
