A delegation from Interior Health made a presentation describing:
- IHA's capital budgeting methodology
- The proposed capital budget for 2015
RDOS taxpayers are responsible for approximately 40% of all capital costs in the Hospital District. The province of BC pays the rest either through IHA or through operating expenses paid to P3 partners. The Regional Hospital District board (which is simply the RDOS board) reviews the capital budget prior to approving it when we approve the overall RDOS budget.
The patient care tower is going to have a significant tax impact. However, it will have significant benefits for the entire region.
