The village of Masset will be doing “something nice” for the Masset hospital after hearing that the facility got one of the highest scores in the province for cleanliness during a recent evaluation.
“They ranked second out of 160 facilities in BC, and that is quite impressive,” said councillor Janet Brown Monday night (July 11). “I would like to do something for them, something that’s really pretty nice.”
Council members agreed that the hospital staff are very much appreciated and deserve to be recognized in some way, and will be thinking of something appropriate.
According to Tony Tyler, manager of diagnostic imaging at the hospital, the Masset facility scored 93.5 percent on the independent cleanliness audit, and the Queen Charlotte hospital rated 90.5 percent. Both sites were above the northern average of 88 percent.
