You can change the name all you wants but a rose is still a carnation. I'm pretty sure were still going to call it the mental, the big red building in be bowdring park or the waterford hotel. That was years ago and we never meant nothing by it. Those were the good old days. Willie Hunt Pouch Cove NL

I am very pleased to see Mental Health in NL have new state of the art facilities. However tearing down the Waterford will be a sad day for me as my Grandfather, as well as some of his comrades, died there after fighting with The Royal Newfoundland Regiment during WW1. Like it or not the building is where he spent the last days of his life after fighting for our freedom to make such decisions as replacing the hospital. I am sure many Newfoundlanders have a similiar story. The Waterford will always be remembered by me as a place that provided the best care possible for my brave Grandfather and many a Newfoundlander like him. The Hospital did the best job it could. May ALL RIP.
