Public Opinion – Should Harrison Tax Payers Pay For A Satellite Medical Office?

Harrison Hot Spring – Time is winding down for the Village of Harrison Hot Springs to seek public opinion on whether or not a medical facility should be paid for by its electors.

They have asked the Village for a contribution of $36,000 per year to support this pilot hub and spoke type model.

Services would include, but not be limited to, one medical physician and one nurse practitioner (or other medical specialist) at least one day per week.

Monday, September 16 @ 4:00 pm is the deadline for submissions of the Alternate Approval form regarding this proposal from Fraser Health.

    No .Agassiz Health will expand an additional day of walk-ins for local residents in need of medical help. This includes residents from Agassiz, Harrison, Rosedale and Popkum. They have at time of my letter three new Dr. who are offering their service as a family doctor by visiting the Heath Centre or sign up online.
    I have been going there since last year. Harrison Village are wanting to dip in to our taxes for the council not being fast enough for RIM why should Tax Payers be paying for their tardiness.
