The gentle winter of 2014/15 was truly appreciated by the staff of MRWC. The Centre was running with just 1 part-time hospital staff and the building was on its last legs with the heating system crashing by late winter. The warm weather and lack of snow made it so much easier to function but also brought far less patients than normal. The Centre experienced less than half of the normal patient calls than a normal, more difficult winter. We really will be working hard to get the new hospital in place for next year because we likely won't be as lucky two years in a row.
