Your chance to name the new hospital

By johnboy - 30 July 2008 33

Katy Gallagher is asking children and, er, everyone else, to suggest a name for the new Women’s and Children’s hospital.

But it’s not just any old name she wants the kiddies to come up with.

    Ms Gallagher said the Government would like to name the new facility after a woman who had contributed significantly to the advancement of women’s and children’s issues in the Territory.

What’s the only name to come to mind? Why Ms Gallagher, you don’t want to get this thing named after yourself do you?

Normally the way these things work is they’ve already picked the name they want and are hoping some photogenic moppet will lob in the right answer to make for a friendlier media opportunity.

Suggestions to yourhealthourpriority@act.gov.au, but make sure you share them with us first.

What’s Your opinion?

I know!

Let’s call it the Katie Gallagher Hospital!

Why hasn’t anyone thought of that?

calling the hospital after Katie Bender probably would cause the government a few headaches one suspects.

Name it after Kate Carnell, anyone?

drinker / driver, grass painter, not much good close to hospitals – they seem to blow up. still think Katie bender memorial would be a good choice – would curtail the plans to build that bridge near the museum…

LG,

They are trying that down here in Hobart, and trust me its not working…

There was probably a mother on the Siev X we could name it after – plus we could use those wooden posts as supports/foundations for the new building.

caf, I guess no body suggested the name they wanted 😉

Presumably they were less than whelmed with responses in the last two months.

I imagine the hospital-naming-review-process could well go a little something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLcsPgYrZ9Q (skip to about 2 minutes in)

Sir, this news is stale!

Ahh… but now it’s the moppets being asked to come up with a name.

Pleasing to see you’re paying attention though Caf.

Tyler,

It is anticipated to be part of the Woden jobbie.

My vote is for Beryl Henderson. Not only is it a ripper of an aussie name, and invokes one the best of the worst aussie telly shows, but she did more hard yarkka than the bloke in VB ad.

caf 10:23 am 30 Jul 08

Sir, this news is stale!

tylersmayhem 10:20 am 30 Jul 08

Where is this new hospital going to be situated?

peterh 10:10 am 30 Jul 08

how about the katie bender memorial hospital?

certainly isn’t half bad, and won’t have the wrong katy in the name.
