********************************Original Story********************************

Prince Rupert City Hall has provided for the first 'official' comment on the recent string of four Emergency Room closures at Prince Rupert Regional Hospital, with the city's Corporate and Legislative Services Officer providing for the commentary from civic leadership.

In an information release issued  just after 10:30 AM, Rosa Miller noted of the City's concern and empathy for the community for those who have been impacted by the closures. 

Mx. Miller  also  reinforces the City's plans to engage with community stakeholders in April on the issue of health concerns.

The plan moving forward towards that engagement with Stakeholders was outlined at the March 11th City Council session.

The statement released through the City's Social Media stream, is shaping up as somewhat of a focus group on the issue of Health Care in the community.
