HAMILTON Base Hospital is getting bogged down with plans for its new south-east wing which is to cost an estimated $1½ million. Heads of hospital departments have expressed dissatisfaction with the original plans and have failed to reach agreement on amendments. Confusion reigned at a meeting of the hospital when the planning committee submitted a revised set of plans. Previous meetings of the planning committee agreed to call for written submissions from departmental heads affected by the building program. It was intended then to have a further conference with architects. Revised plans were prepared and rushed from the architect in time for the hospital committee meeting – but following this meeting the proposal is no further advanced.
