Hospital reduced to shell

In the 60 plus years during which I have lived here, I have watched in despair as our hospital has been reduced to a shell of its former self.
Over the years, I have been privileged to have used it for such divers activities as the maternity facilities, to have my children’s childhood accidents dealt with, surgery undertaken for adults, and finally a dedicated place in which my mother, and very many others, could come to a comfortable and peaceful end.
I still use it for various clinics but I grieve for what it once was.
Is it really too late to backtrack on the “pie in the sky” new hospital and return to thinking about extending the present one? Modern technology can surely manage to cope with the remote possibility of flooding, and it is surely in the perfect position!
