Other uses of Fort St. John hospital being explored

 

The company is examining the use of the current facility and health care centre in the city's downtown area, before relocating to the new hospital facility in 2012.

Throughout the past two and a half years, a number of studies and reports have been conducted regarding the future use of the hospital site and building. Upon review by the Northern Health Board of Directors, it has been decided that the cost to renovate the facility is too large.

Chair of the Northern Health Board Dr. Charles Jago says, “Based on the comprehensive information we’ve received, the most appropriate option is to explore interest in other uses and options, including potential sale.”

According to Northern Health, the site will now be examined by other government agencies, before it decides to explore market interest in the land or building. Other options include the demolition of the building and sale of the land alone.

Stakeholders will continue ongoing discussions regarding future uses for the site over the next few months.
