To say an official goodbye to the existing facility, a barbecue is being held this Saturday, June 9. Northern Health will be serving hamburgers and cake from 2 – 4 p.m. on the patio area beside the administration entrance.
Maureen Haley, Communications Officer for Northern Health, says the event will be a good time to reflect on the old hospital.
“It will be fitting for people to get a chance to say good-bye,” she says. “The old hospital has served many people and has provided many memories. It will be nice to give people the opportunity to talk about their memories and experiences before we move into the hospital.”
The barbecue will take place rain or shine, and is free for the public.
