The Thompson Local News

Thompson City Council met on Monday night and one of the topics addressed was the recent changes from the provincial government with regards to health care funding.


The province announced an investment of over $500,000 towards four projects in Thompson, specifically at the Thompson General Hospital.


The projects being funded are:

  • Assessing the scope of work needed to address mould in the hospital's crawlspace
  • Repairing and upgrading existing heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems in the hospital
  • Installing a dedicated year-round air-conditioning system for the lab at the hospital and upgrading existing heating, lighting and ventilation
  • Upgrading the operating room theatre surgical lighting, upgrading security for the seclusion rooms and upgrading the water booster in the hospital


Thompson city councilor Penny Byer said that while she's glad the money is coming to Thompson, it's not going to the right place.


Byer said that the root of the issue is a leaky roof, and that money is going to keep being spent doing these spot repairs until they fix the overlying problem.


Deputy Mayor Valentino spoke after Councilor Byer, and said that Thompsonites should be focused on the money that is coming to Thompson, rather than the loss of the Consultation Clinic and other projects that were cut.


She said that it's easy to focus on the negatives, but that the projects being funded are good for the city, and that the chemo ward is going to continue being funded and is nearing completion.
