Protect Public Health Care – Sunshine Coast
We are a grassroots organization, composed of citizens of the Sunshine Coast, opposed to the plan by Vancouver Coastal Health Authority to contract with a private for-profit contractor to build and operate a residential long term Senior’s care facility.
Our steering committee is comprised of representatives of senior’s organizations, health care providers, family members of residents in long-term care and other concerned citizens.
The purpose of the group:
To provide leadership and organization to the efforts of those opposed to the decision by VCH to move Senior’s residential care from the health authority to a private for-profit contractor.
To have this plan reversed and for VCH to enter into meaningful community engagement.
To educate the public about the consequences of privatization and funding cuts that have already taken place within our health care facilities.
To help safeguard our community against further eroding quality health care for our seniors.
To build a bridge to other communities whose public health care facilities are under attack.
