What the St. Marys Memorial Hospital means

St. Marys Journal Argus

Dear Editor:

On June 6, 1944, Canadians and their allies streamed ashore on the beaches of France in what was “the end of the beginning.”

D-Day was a memorable day, changing the momentum of WWII. Later, Victory in Europe was celebrated. The year following, Victory in Japan was celebrated. These celebrations involved the freeing of the men, women and children worldwide. World governments set their sights on peaceful co-existence and freedom against oppression and intimidation.

These victories in St. Marys were recognized with the establishment of the St. Marys Memorial Hospital. The hospital recognizes the million Canadians that have fought for their country and the 100,000 that have given their lives.

It is a place for our visiting relatives, who will be treated in a respectful, efficient and inexpensive way. It is a place for our loved ones to be attended to with love, care, and affection by a dedicated and committed staff. It is a place supported, unselfishly, by many volunteers, providing invaluable service without expectation of recognition or economic benefit.

It is a place with where emergency services are available 24 hours per day and seven days a week.

It is a place to go to get fit and stay fit at the on-site YMCA. It is a place to get rehabilitated at the outstanding St. Marys Community Rehab.

It is a place open to all, young and old, children, moms and dads, grandfathers and grandmothers, friends and relatives and love ones!

Sincerely,

Chris West, St. Marys
