(From Page 1) would cost half the amount of a new hospital. "Federal funds would not be available for modernization of the existing facility except by gutting and rebuilding or through modern- ization by total replacement." Godard pointed out that the national trend is toward federal fire safety standards includ- ing eight-foot wide hallways and four-foot wide inside doorways which Valley General also does not have. He said a sprinkling system alone would cost $40,000. Directing his question to Noecker, hospital commission chairman Don Broughton of Sultan asked: "We remodeled the building a few years ago. What assurance do we have that a new facility won't be obsolete in a few years." Noecker replied that with sophisticated plan- ning and projections a building constructed now would not be obsolete within 20 years and more likely 50. He said he was referring to structure, not technique, that the forecast would hold for standard practices but under abnormal clrcum- stances and discoveries of new, outstanding techniques the hospital could be obsolete in less than 20 years.

He said the hospital site and building would be sold and the money returned to the coffers for the new build- ing. Asked by Dr. Clarence Bunge of Monroe what revenue was anticipated from sale of the present hospital Broughton replied: "We could get anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000. Who can tell? It depends on what use is made of it." Asked if the present building would be suitable for use as a convalescent home Noecker answer- ed that tt would if a sprinkler system were installed and if the building could meet the competition toward "big, beautiful nursing homes." Commissioners were asked what five sites were considered and Irv Faussett told of two-- "one above the Drift Inn on U. S. 2 and one in the area of the old Roosevelt school." Asked if any sites were looked at between Monroe and Sultan Boddington said they were not because the board felt the bulk of population in 5 to 20 years would be west of Monroe and with the advent of new roads in the area upper valley residents could reach the hospital in about the same time as it takes now. Referring to the land under option Noecker aid: "I inspected your proposed site earlier and considering factors of location, noise, sewage, proximity to criminial institutions and the other points, it looks like a commendable site. Asked if there was anything wrong with the present site Noecker replied: "No, except for its closeness to the railroad and the rail crossing. There would be some- thing wrong if you wanted to expand. There isn't room." The question was posed that if there wasn't room to expand on the present 5-acre site how could the big city hospitals continue to enlarge without any acreage. Boddington said the state and government take different views on already gigantic struct- ures and they are allowed to expand upwards, that concessions are made that don'thave to be made where land is available to fulfill parking requirements. Noecker explained that a hospital should have one parking space for every full-time employee plus two for every bed and with the recom- mendation of 100 per cent expansion in 20 years, a minimum of 300 to 350 parking spaces will be needed. Godard added that the projection of 187 new hospital beds needed in the county within five years is considered too low an estimate by the board's hospital architects who see the need for an ultimate facility of 350 to 400 beds. Dr. Bunge also asked where the bulk of voting power lay - in the west end of the hospital district or the east end and Boddington replied: "It's about the same between the Snohomtsh and Monroe area. General bond issues require a 40 per cent turnout of the last general elect- ion and 60 per cent passage which takes away from any one group the power to control is- suance of bonds. If either end were to vote 90 per cent one way they might control it." Answering "what would happen if the issue fails in November" Boddington said the measure, presumably placed before the voters again, would still have to pass 60/40 by 40 per cent of the voters. Lawrence V. Whitfteld of West Main Street asked: "Do you have reasonable assurance from Snohomish doctors that they would use the fa- cility? I'm told that a great r/umber of Snohom- tsh patients are referred to Everett hospitals." Godard answered that at a Joint meeting of the medical staff and the commissioners when the hospital project was first talked, Snohomish doctors "unanimously indicated this would be their hospital, where they would do the majority of their practice." Not in attendance of last week's meeting was the hospital district's third commissioner, Clar- ice Cedergreen of Snohomish. A second meeting between commissioners and the public is scheduled at 8 p.m. tonight, Thurs- day, in the Sultan Town Hall at the request of the Sultan Ad Club. Attendance of commission- ers was assured by Boddington. Corn ""' ....
