While Dix underlined that the new hospital is an acute care facility - he said a new hospital is always an attraction to new staff.

"Graduates want to use their skills to the utmost," Dix said noting a new facility on the grounds of a college will see doctors, nurses, health care workers, new student and training positions created.

Mayor Dale Bumstead said he would put existing staff in Dawson Creek up against any in the province in terms of their committment to the health and well-being of the Peace region.
