I just could not believe my eyes and ears. Not a response in our local paper or radio station. Our fish hatchery is gone; and 80-90 per cent of our blood services and two Lab Techs are being taken from Queens General Hospital. Down the road will our hospital also be a âdone dealâ?
Why were the two Tech positions not loaned to Bridgewater instead of being taken away from Queens General permanently? That would have given Queens room to negotiate the return of the two positions if Bridgewater were able to attract some new Lab Techs in the future.
We, the people of Queens, helped raise over $16 million, with no help from Government, for an addition to our Hospital. As a volunteer that helped canvass for this addition; and many, many years of working for our Hospital Hustle; why should I keep up the hard work down the road if our services are going to end up in Bridgewater.
There has been a lack of support from past, present, and probably future politicians, for a Seniors Complex in our fair town, yet they have been sprouting like mushrooms in most other communities. Maybe South Shore Health is giving us a Seniors Complex. They just havenât told us yet.
Letâs have a Town Hall meeting to hear the other side of the story.
