Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedn'-Sflnv, 1971 _ IFTHRPlnRE HFHAIO 49 For municipal hospital RICHARD BATEMAN Richard Batcraan, 51, is a financial planner in Leth- bridge. Originally from Bur- ma, India, he moved to Can- ada in 1952. Mr. Bateman is a member of severaj organizations in- cluding ToEstmasters Inter- national, Royal Canadian Le- gion World Federalist Asso- ciation, United Nations Or- ganization, Emergency Mea- sures Organization in Leth- bridge and is a charter mem- ber of the International As- sociation of Financial Plan- ners. He formerly served on the Board of AID in Lethbridge. Mr. Bateman is married and has four children. Modernization is certainly a necessity and a goal worth striving'for but I would like to see new methods and equip- ment introduced in harmony with other important facets the hospital administra- tion. I plan to work for more effi- ciency, greater co ordination between services, economic preservation, harmony of per- sonnel and restoration of the hospitals' public image. DON LE BARON Donald Le Baron, 37, is the administrator of the Green Acres Foundation, a senior citizen's organization. He lias served as secre- tary treasurer of the South- ern Homes Association since 1861 and has held the same post with the Provincial Homes Association since 1967. He is also wee president of the Alberta Council of Ag- ing. Mr. Le Baron is married and has two children. I stand committed to work towards the early implementa- tion of the Blair Report and to maintain our hospital services at a high level, within our abil- ity to pay. I plan to work for establish- ment of a local Alberta Health Care Insurance office to elim- inate existing mass confusion on medical coverage. I will work ensuring lhat our health care facilities are equal to our needs and will work towards Ihe provision and efficient operation of needed health facilities. f A. W. 1'. SKKI.TON P. Kkcllon, 53, is n nKieisl in I.ethhriil'ie Me has served on thr. aux- iliary hospital board and is a past member of several community organizations in- cluding the Grcon Acres Ki- wanis Club ;nui the L e t ii- bi'iiifH1 Mr. Skt'ilon is past presi- dent of Ihe Albprla Pharma- ceutical Associalion and is also past president of the Anne Campbell Singers Asso- ciation. Mr. Skellon is married and has four children. As a prospective new mem- ber of the hospital board, it is difficult lo state a specific pol- icy but I will enter this office with an open mind. If I am elected, then I will be able to assess the situation and work toward providing the best possible care for the pa- tients. This can only be achiev- ed by having the board, ad- ministration, medical and nurs- ing staff and all employees working together. ItLAINE THACKER Elaine Thacker, 30, a city lawyer, is seeking hospital board office for the first time. He received a degree to agriculture from the Univer- sity of Alberta in 1964 and a law degree from the U of A in 1968. Mr. Thacker is a past mem- ber of the Day Care Centre Committee and is now serv- ing on the Lethbridge and Region Mental Health Plan- ning Council. Mr. Thacker is married with two children. The Lethbridge Municipal Hospital Board is responsible for the organization, operation and management of the hospi- tal. It must negotiate with the Alberta Hospital Services Com- mission for grants to cover the capital and operating budgets. It must also deal with em- ployees' groups and the medi- cal staff concerning appoint- ments, suspensions, hospital privileges etc. In negotiating with the Com- mission, the staff and the doc- tors it is important to have members who will be fair, rea- sonable and apply independent judgment. STAN VERLINDEN Stan Verlinden, 44, came to Canada from Belgium in 1960 and opened his own insur- ance office. He has served on the Leth- bridge Hospital board for the past four years and has studied at Lethbridge Junior College. Mr. Verlinden is married with no children. Some pressing needs are: Air conditioning for the entire hos- pital and more shared services between the hospitals. I feel blood bank facilities should be established in Leth- bridge to serve southern Alber- ta. A comprehensive Home Care Program should lie developed to extend care for the sick to their homes. An effective inter city am- bulance service should he es- tablished to serve southern Al- berta. I further believe that health care costs should be carried by the senior governments.
