    “We talked about the next step,” he says. “Getting everything operational with a push on for next summer with planning and adapting to change.”

    Corner Brook Mayor Jim Parsons says staff at the new Western Memorial Regional Hospital are anxiously working on getting everything tested and ready to go by next summer. He had a tour of the modern facility on Friday and spoke with staff. “We talked about the next step,” he says. “Getting everything operational with a push on for next summer with planning and adapting to change.”

    Parsons says this facility has been needed for a long time. He says work is continuing on Mt. Bernard getting the water and sewer in place for the new hospital. The West Coast Sanitarium opened in 1951 and became part of the first Western Memorial Regional Hospital in the seventies.
