To the Editor,
I wanted to take the time to remind the residents in this area just how lucky you are compared to those of us in Toronto.
A family member recently had a child at the New Life Centre at the Port Perry Hospital, so needless to say, a trip to see the new arrival was in order!
First of all, you should be beyond pleased with your hospital. For one, we didn’t need a map or complex directions to find our way around. Even if we did, everyone was so cheerful and friendly, it was almost a shame that we didn’t, since I’m sure the staff would have gone out of their way to assist us. We have nothing but good things to say about the ladies at the gift shop too!
But, the real kicker was when we went to leave and we found out that it would only cost us four dollars to park - total. Not for 15 minutes, not for an hour - four dollars flat!
This would never happen in Toronto, unfortunately we spent some time at Sunnybrook not too long ago, and it was outrageous! I hope eventually the government will do something, because parking fees at hospitals have been out of hand for far too long. Luckily, there is some decency left in the world, we just had to drive to Port Perry to be able to find it.
