A recent study conducted by the steering committee for the new hospital puts accessibility issues at the top of the list for criteria when considering site selection.

From the nearly 600 responses the highest ranking criteria included proximity to emergency service like EMS and police, parking potential and transit accessibility.

Hospital CEO David Musyj says this criteria will be weighted through the procurement process for property. “Individuals in the community that have property that they think meets one or all or more of the criteria will have an opportunity to propose that their property be selected.”

Musyj hopes the committee will have a recommendation for the new site by the fall of this year.
