He was addressing the management and staff of the hospital during a tour, which also involved Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dr. Jean Dixon, and a team of health professionals.
Mr. Spencer advised the Chairman of the Hospital Board, Noel Donaldson, and members, that he was thinking of placing the CEO at another level of operations.
“You better try and find a new CEO, because where men work so hard, I have more work for them to do elsewhere”, the Minister noted.
“To the hardworking and committed staff of Cornwall Regional Hospital, I am truly pleased with your work. I am pleased because, instead of complaining, you have been working tremendously hard with the little that you have,” Mr. Spencer said.

“We at the Ministry of Health appreciate all that is being done and the efforts made in this region, even in an economic crisis, to ensure that good health care is given at all time. I see some very creative things being done, and I really want to congratulate you all on that,” Dr. Campbell-Forrester said.
