‘So proud to have a hos­pi­tal of our own’

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - Front Page -

The May 13, 1965 spe­cial edi­tion of The Glen­garry News re­ported the his­toric mo­ment, the cul­mi­na­tion of five years of work that re­sulted in the con­struc­tion of the Hôpi­tal Glen­garry Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal in Alexandria. In this sup­ple­ment we re­flect on that mo­men­tous col­lec­tive achieve­ment and look to the fu­ture of this valu­able in­sti­tu­tion. A com­mon sen­ti­ment was ex­pressed in that spe­cial edi­tion five decades ago: “This fine ac­com­plish­ment is the r esult of a lot of peo­ple work­ing to­gether for the com­mon good.” The in­sti­tu­tion has un­der gone many changes over the years. How­ever, as the hos­pi­tal con­tin­ues to evolve, the at­tach­ment the com­mu­nity has to this vi­tal health car e fa­cil­ity has not waned. Hos­pi­tal board chair Jac­que­line Fraser says it b est when she re­calls the in­au­gu­ra­tion: “I re­mem­ber we were so proud to have a hos­pi­tal of our own. We are still very proud.”
