Eric Foster - VJH Purple Ribbon Rally July 1st, 2011 - by Maria Besso

Canada Day Rally at Vernon Jubilee Hospital - Purple Ribbon Campaign to get the gov't to complete the two shelled in floors in the new Polson Tower, and Fund more acute care beds. The 100 day countdown is on to the Tower completion ( set for late Sept. 2011) - we need the two shelled in floors completed 'Now'! Now, before the workers go away and it costs even more to get them back in. The overcrowding is 'chronic', it is not just a one time thing. People are coming to the North Okanagan, the population statistics show an increase in elderly, and a corresponding increase in need for hospital beds and medical services. The statistics have demonstrated it over and over ... It is the North Okanagan's turn to receive the funding for beds!!!
