Everyone keeps harping about P/C/G running doctors out of town..well let me give you a little history! Before p/c/g were even in Victoria..there was a heart doctor named Douglas Salmon who was run out of town by the Citizen's group (I guess they didn't like the competition) ..he was promised a cath lab and they started building it and low and behold it was turned into a huge storeroom for many years. Then Parikh came to Victoria and they tried their best to run him out of town too! The hospital and physician politics have been going on for a very long time..but this time Mr. Brown and the board went a little too far..I do believe that the patient should have a choice of hospital, surgeon, physician!

My family has used CMC for all of our surgeries..we chose the hospital..we chose our surgeon and we always had excellent care! But I do not want an Administrator of a hospital or a board limiting my healthcare choices for any of my family members! Last time I checked we live in America..we are already having to deal with insurance companies placing limitations on our healthcare we certainly do not need an administrator of a hospital limiting our choices!
