The proposal was made to Health Minister Dennis Cocke. The board says the change would cost little and could be reversed if the need arises for more beds. The board says the wing could accommodate 17 extended care patients. Unused, the wing is on the ground floor. It is heated, lighted and fully air conditioned. The hospital has an active physiotherapy department with a qualified physiotherapist, the submission to the minister said.
