Steinbach city council is joining the push for more health care funding.It is sending a letter to the province asking it to re-examine its funding formula and take a closer look at Bethesda Hospital and the growing needs at that facility. Mayor Chris Goertzen says the emergency and surgical department at the hospital are in desperate need of some attention. He says more money has to be put into the hospital in order for it to keep pace with the growth in the community. Councillor Abe Hiebert thinks this letter will lead to a meeting with minister Ron Lemieux or Premier Gary Doer where they can discuss the situation.
