With the relocation of Saint Paul’s hospital now confirmed, the NDP is wondering what will become of Mount Saint Joseph’s hospital in Vancouver.
Her own riding will be the new home of St Paul’s, but Vancouver-Mount Pleasant MLA Jenny Kwan is worried about Mount Saint Joseph’s says Chinese-Canadians rely on the facility.
“Can the minister of health confirm that Mt St Joseph will not be closed as a result of the announcement of the rebuilding of St Paul’s?”
Health Minister Terry Lake says its future has yet to be decided.
“It may be that the alignment of services will change, I don’t want to speculate too much on that. You know, through this process it may be possible to increase investment in St Jo’s.”
The hospital just off Kingsway opened in 1946.
