Carl Meadows, the director of clinical operations in the South Okanagan, last year went begging for the regional hospital district to give $1 million and designate the Penticton UPCC as a hospital, both of which were given.
Now we hear Interior Health can't even staff a doctor at the UPCC "hospital". What a waste of money.
They should have given that money to Pathways to stay open and continue functioning.
We hear all about the opioid epidemic and how our leaders pretend like they care while they do nothing. IH is amongst them.
It decreases services while it pretends like it is improving things. And it wastes money on "hospitals" with no doctors.
