It looks like Minister of Health Terry Lake will be in Queen Charlotte Tuesday for a special ceremony to mark the start of construction on the new hospital. Invitations went out this week for the groundbreaking event, which will be held at the hospital on July 30 starting at 10 am. The new hospital is expected to take about two years to build, and will cost around $50 million. It will replace the existing hospital, built in the 1950s, and medical clinic.
