The Canberra Times has the news that Calvary Hospital reckons it has a contractual right to be the only hospital in Canberra’s North.
Ms Gallagher told residents she had just come from a meeting with Calvary staff, who believed the owners’ lease arrangements gave them exclusive right to run an acute care hospital in the city’s north. She said Calvary had threatened to sue the Government should it proceed with plans for another hospital in the north.
Well this is going swimmingly isn’t it?
UPDATE: Katy Gallagher is now hosing this down saying the reported language is too strong and Calvary are denying they ever threatened to sue anyone.
