Shining a light on quality health care
In today’s society there seems to be a lot of negativity — when one turns on the latest news it soon becomes a lot of bad news.
With the realization that bad news sells and that bad news travels fast, I would like to take the time to pass along a little good news to all the staff at the G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital in Clarenville.
Too often we have heard the negative comments in referring to the hospital and having had little contact, we often come to believe that it is the way things are.
Goebbels, a popular propaganda minister during the Second World War, had the belief that if people heard something often enough, no matter how bad the lie was, that eventually they would begin to believe it.
Since the beginning of the present year, I have had reason to avail of the services at the G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital and each and every contact has been nothing but positive.
The staff has shown nothing but concern and exemplary professionalism.
Considering the cuts to the public sector and recent budgets, the health care has been one of the hardest hit.
With the population of Newfoundland and Labrador aging and the outmigration of our young people, the strain on good health services becomes even greater. As the need goes up, the support seems to be going in the opposite direction.
The Clarenville area has much to be proud of and the G.B. Cross and the staff of this hospital is a shining light that needs to be recognized as a top-notch facility.
