The GHCS owns and operates the Health Care Centre building. Right now we have a great team of health professionals provided by VIHA and using the Centre to serve our community. However VIHA is unwilling to provide sufficient funding to cover the costs of managing and operating the Health Care Centre itself. Each year our Board has energetically fundraised and sourced donations to make up a shortfall of approximately $60,000 just to keep our doors open.
That effort is proving more challenging due to economic constraints together with rising maintenance costs. We have reached the point where the Board has had to make the difficult decision to go to the community for support via a property tax levy.
See the attached document for answers to some common questions people are raising. If your question is not answered by this or you have other comments, please do come to our Public Meeting on September 28th at 1pm at the Lion’s Hall. Everyone’s welcome!
