Doctor Paul Gill, from Alexandra Marine & General Hospital has gone before the local council saying that the hospital wastes too much time transferring emergency cases to the airport in order for them to have access to a larger hospital.
He suggested that a helipad be built in the field opposite Cambria Road, next to the Maitland Valley Medical Centre. The hospital has made use of air ambulance Ornge 17 times in six months, but feel that it should have been utilised more. Ornge has used the field before in the 2011 tornado recovery missions, proving it to be an ideal location.
The construction would take $50, 000, with a yearly maintenance of $500, reports Goderich SignalStar. The council has agreed to vote on the proposal and return with a report.
