Planning for G.R. Baker Upgrade
Quesnel, B.C. – Changes to G.R. Baker Hospital are on the way.
The Ministry of Health is working with Northern Health and First Nations on the development of a business plan for both a new emergency department and intensive care unit for the G.R. Baker Hospital in Quesnel.
Because the site has archeological significance, the first step will be consultation with First Nations.
The business plan will include analysis of health-service needs and more detailed information on the project’s scope and costs.
G.R. Baker Hospital first opened in 1955 . It has 38 acute care beds, four intensive care unit beds, a trauma room and five emergency spaces. The emergency department was built in 1986 and is outdated and in need of upgrades.
“This project will make a significant difference for both patients and providers in delivering person and family-centered care in Quesnel,” said Dr. Charles Jago, Northern Health board chair.
G.R. Baker Hospital provides a variety of health services including full emergency medical care, lab services, diagnostic imaging, mental-health and addictions supports, and chronic disease management.
OMG, while there is no mention of the BC Liberals, can we not assume to kiss their a$$ for this announcement? The Terrace hospital is years away from being replace, yet makes the news now, these upgrades to the Quesnel hospital are years away from even being implemented, yet makes the news now! Friday’s, just before an election is definitely the time for these kind of good news announcements.
Wawawa…as little BH gets her skirt all tied in a knot!
The best thing about all of these announcements is knowing how much they are getting BH’s panties in a bunch, haha!
Must be going through a lot of Kleenex wiping away all of your tears, eh Peeps?
What’s gonna happen to BH when the Liberals get back in power in May?
On another note when I was at GR Baker visiting a friend in emerg 2 years ago I was shaking my head as the department was in a sorry state of affairs kuddo’s to the ER staff being able to do what they do with what they have available
Yea, BH always seems to get his Liberal insult in somewhere! Anything to put them down at first crack! Sad in a humorous way as he must figure NDP is the ultimate, should run for office if he feels so strongly. First thing he will want to do is get rid of all the jails as it isn’t the inmate’s fault! LOL
A vague news story where the future date of this upgrade is not even mentioned. So anyone’s guess is as good as mine; I am going for the year 2025.
Excellent to see these upgrades taking place, it’s been a need for years.
