Statement on Funding For New Clinic
January 17, 2018
Healthcare provision is vital for a community, in Peace River, regional neighbours have worked hard over the last decade to improve services through the West Hill Medical Campus. This week that work took a huge step forward thanks to Northern Sunrise County.
The Town of Peace River congratulates, supports, and is grateful that Northern Sunrise County has committed to taking the lead on this project through the Peace Regional Clinic Committee. Their $5 million commitment to build a new medical clinic on the west hill will benefit everyone in the region.
“[We’re] delighted with the agreement that will lead to a modern medical clinic near the hospital. It will help to attract and retain doctors and make some of their processes more efficient.” Said Peace River Deputy Mayor and Clinic Committee member Elaine Manzer. “The new clinic along with Rotary House will benefit families from the Northwest region who will be using the medical facilities in Peace River.”
This announcement comes following years of work by the Peace Regional Clinic Committee. This committee is comprised of the Town of Peace River, Northern Sunrise County, the County of Northern Lights, and MD of Peace. It demonstrates what can be accomplished when the whole region works together.
