Health Minister Terry Lake says he is really impressed with the state of the art hospital.
“I was amazed,” he says. “The views are stunning, the building its self is so light and roomy. The facilities are absolutely the most modern of any hospital that I’ve seen and I’ve toured a lot of hospitals. For a community this size to have a facility like this is nothing short of amazing.”
