The 2019 budget and 5-year financial plan for the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District has been approved.
The CCHRD operating budget is $9.4 million, of which $8.3 million is tax funded.
“The Hospital District Board is excited that the Cariboo Memorial and G.R. Baker Hospital upgrade projects continue to move forward,” said CCRHD vice chair Al Richmond.
“We have been placing aside reserve funds in our CCRHD budgets for the last 18 years towards these projects and we are continuing to do so in this five-year financial plan. We are in a strong position to financially contribute to these vital health investments in the region.”
The hospital district provides approximately 40 % of funding towards equipment and capital expenses in the region.
