To Whom it may concern:
Northern Health has engaged in planning efforts with School District #91 (Nechako Lakes) to explore the co-location of health services in the Babine Elementary Secondary School in Granisle.
The planning is in the early stages.
The current health services are located in the Health Unit at #80 Hagan Street. The building is owned by the Ministry of Citizens’ Services (CITZ) Real Property Division but sits on leased land. Recent issues regarding renewal terms and the neighbouring buildings have opened the opportunity for Northern Health and the School District to explore an innovative solution that will serve the community into the future.
Northern Health is committed to the current location subject to the existing lease agreement. In the short term, there are no changes anticipated to services delivered at the current facility.
Northern Health is committed to sustaining the existing health care services in Granisle and keeping the community well-informed of any changes.
