The majority councilor Maria Laura Risso (Center for Cuneo): “It is absurd to indicate the area of the Holy Cross for the new single hospital, despite the problems highlighted even before the epidemic”. Then he recalled that all the technicians reiterated the lack of space on the plateau for a new structure. The colleague Silvano Enrici: “Disappointed by how the problem has not been addressed, we don’t go on waiting for the few who are always against it”. He spoke of the risk that the hub hospital, or the provincial reference, “will end up in Verduno. There are precise data on the lack of space in the city center; who does not agree on Carle, respond to those data “. Umberto Fino, of the same group, defended his proposal for a “vertical hospital”, a kind of skyscraper near the Santa Croce: “Perhaps Cuneo people want the hospital to remain on the plateau for various reasons, including commercial ones”.
Criticisms of the document, then approved, also by other majority directors: Ivano Oggero di Crescere together (“So we lose the status of hub”), Sara Tomatis and Gianfranco Demichelis of the Democratic Party. Tomatis: «Amazed that my group has signed up to this agenda. Carle’s choice was not in question; wasting time is equivalent to not choosing ». The leader of the Democratic Party Carmelo Noto: “No change of mind on the Carle area on our part, but the special commission gave the technicians the last word”.
Mayor Borgna concluded: «After Covid, health must be rethought. We will soon have a feasibility study with a health report: politics will choose where to build the single hospital. In the future, more space will be needed, higher than that of the two current head offices. We have a few weeks to decide by imagining a new reorganization, putting in a “non-chosen” place a structure that deals with post-acute, research and ambulatorthe”. –
