Also approved was a recommendation by the medical staff that Dr. P. John Wheeldon be appointed chief of medical staff. Plans for the new hospital are proceeding slowly, as a result of the British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service not completing its review of the functional program. The East Kootenay Regional Hospital District has requested a five-year capital equipment budget; it contributes two-thirds to the cost of capital equipment for all hospitals in the district. The board approved this request and asked for early action. Administrator R. C. Williams reported about his trip to Vancouver to meet with Paul Smith Associates, architects for the new hospital, and their consultants, and his trip to Victoria to see Government Officials. The operating budget for 1971 is comprised of $418,000 in salaries and $147,000 in other expenditures for a total of $565,-000. This represents an increase of 9.7 per cent over the year 1970. Salaries alone increased 10.3 per cent on the average, the same number of fulltime positions are being called for as are now in existence. A very high capital equipment budget is also anticipated as much of the existing equipment needs to be replaced. Medical staff privileges were also renewed for all doctors now on staff as follows: active consultant, Dr. N. Fahmi; active staff: Dr. J. B. Davies. Dr. W. H. S. East, Dr. G. Le-roux, Dr. M. McRitchie, Dr. J. Tsang and Dr. P J. Wheeldon. Courtesy consultants: Dr. Ge-hami (pathologist), Dr. Hsu (radiologist), Dr. Love (cardiologist). Courtesy staff: Dr. E. Luzod and Dr. F. Lundgren. The hospital architects are busy preparing estimates of what it will cost to build in Fernie. Their second task is to inform the board and administration what they can expect to obtain for the funds available. A referendum held in June overwhelming approved $2,140,000. This amount Is expected to fall far short of what is actually required. There is no provision in this amount for inflation, which will certainly be high if the government does not soon provide the necessary approvals. Relating the required facilities to the actual dollars available is the difficult task facing all concerned. Mr. Williams' recommendation of the appointment of P. C. Brooks as quantity surveyor was accepted. Also accepted were Sterling Bjerring and Associates Ltd. as mechanical consultants and A. E. Simpson as electrical consultant. These firms are all based in Vancouver. Trustee Robert S. Gill tendered his resignation at the recent meeting. He is an employee of Kaiser Resources and has been transferred to California. A trustee is being sought to fill his vacancy. First baby arrives at Taber TABER (HNS) - The first baby born at Taber General Hospital in 1971 has arrived.
