Mission Healthcare

2002: Fraser Health Region was formed and healthcare became centralized

This meant that at the Mission Hospital

  • ICU closes
  • Dr. Baillie is forced out
  • OR’s closed
  • Pediatric unit is closed
  • No support for maternity services
  • Threat of losing other services
  • Down 25 beds

Mission Memorial Hospital suffered many losses and cutbacks in 2002.

So where are we now?


  • Can no longer ‘do everything.
  • We have 45 beds.
  • Complementary and alternative medicine hospice.
  • Patient assessment and transition to home (PATH) unit.
  • Division of family practice.
  • Primary care network.
  • Some services are slowly increasing-more internal medicine consultation, more respiratory support.
  • AND the support for getting a CT!
