Tomorrow, many patients visiting Surrey Memorial Hospital might notice that for one day only, parking is free in many designated areas around the medical facility.
However, don’t get too excited.
Ironically, it’s only so people who want to have a sneak peek at the new emergency room that won’t be open until October, can do so free of charge. Come Sunday, it’s back to pay parking. http://www.surreyhospital.ca/2013/06/13/sneak-preview-your-chance-to-tour-surreys-new-emergency-department-is-on-jul-13/
Which makes me kind of wonder…. why is it ok for Fraser Health and the politicians to waive the standard when it suits their needs… in this case, extolling the virtues of a long overdue hospital expansion… and not when it suits the people who need it most?
