Richmond Community Coalition Pleased that Province has Moved ahead to fund a New Acute Care Tower 

 Richmond, B.C. – The Richmond Community Coalition is pleased the B.C. government has acknowledged the hard work Richmond has done to bring a New Acute Care Tower to our residents.  This has paved the way for the announcement of a new tower that recognizes the need for new hospital infrastructure in a large, diverse city. The new acute care tower was a key election issue in last year’s provincial election with strong support from all corners of Richmond.

 “I haven’t seen many issues that truly unite every resident of Richmond the way the need for a new acute care tower for Richmond Hospital has,” said Councillor Ken Johnston.  “Having attended several hospital support events over the past 2 years, there is little doubt a new tower is top of mind for Richmond residents. Today’s announcement shows our community-wide advocacy on this issue has paid off.

 The RCCA wants to recognize the Mayor and Council for its unified and consistent voice to ensure the provincial government and all Richmond MLAs heard how important this tower is to Richmond residents. In fact, the City of Richmond was awarded the 2017 Community Cares Award from the Richmond Hospital Foundation for leading the fight for a new tower.

 “As a passionate advocate for a new acute care tower on behalf of the Richmond Community Coalition, this effort was multiplied by every member of Council of every stripe,” said Councillor Chak Au.  “It was inspiring to see this civic unity manifest itself in a unanimous Council motion pushing the provincial government to move ahead with the tower. It was a real community, team effort. Councillor Johnston and I look forward to continuing the necessary work with the Mayor and Council to bring a new acute care tower to Richmond.”

 As a community-based group, the RCCA cares about community-impactful projects, such as the new acute care tower at Richmond Hospital.  Our members have expressed their voices forcefully and will continue to work in support of this important project.

The Richmond Community Coalition is committed to making local government more efficient, more accountable and more responsible.  The Coalition was established to increase voter turnout and engage local citizens more in government.  Its Elected Representatives and Board of Directors comprise a wide range of community activists, with long records of community service to Richmond.
