The Steering Committee was delighted to receive the latest architect’s rendering of the new hospital at its November 2007 meeting. The project feels ‘real’ when it begins to take shape in this type of drawing. A sign marking the site of the new hospital will be erected soon at Grey Gables in Markdale to provide the community with its first glimpse of the hospital.
The planning process continues with the submission of the Functional Program for the new hospital in mid-October. This is a major planning milestone so as a result, it is expected that a formal response from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care will not be received until early in the New Year (2008). This is in keeping with the normal planning timeframes for major hospital capital projects.
