Preserve the name of Henderson Hospital sign now

In 2006, the Hamilton Health Sciences board made the decision to change the name of the Henderson Hospital to the Juravinski Hospital behind closed doors without engaging the broader community. It is unfortunate that the HHS continue to trample on many of the sensitivities in this community. It is clear that we need to recognize the financial contributions from individuals however; it should not come at the expense of individuals that have been previously recognized for their lifes work.

Do you believe that publicly funded hospitals names should be up for sale? How do you put a dollar value on an individual who has dedicated so much of her life for the public good? Why is it that the HHS did not consider renaming the General Hospital? St. Josephs Hospital, which also received a significant contribution from Charles and Margaret Juravinski, did not change the name of the hospital but recognized the contribution through the naming of a tower? Why is it that DeGroote, Joyce and Braley all made significant contributions to McMaster University, but the name remains McMaster University?
