Mr. Martin:

Yes, it is a hospital if it is licensed by the province. If a nursing home is licensed by the province, it is a hospital for the purposes of this act.

Mr. Blair:

A nursing home becomes a hospital if it is licensed by the province and therefore is eligible?

Mr. Michener:

On that same point may I ask this question? I have not heard the entire discussion. In Ontario private hospitals licensed by the province would be eligible but it does not say for public ward cases. I assume that under the arrangement public ward rates would be paid to the private hospitals.

Mr. Michener:

Public ward rates for the care of patients. The thing that bothers me about private hospitals-and there are some very good private hospitals, as the minister knows-is that no element of the cost takes into account the provision of their buildings and the maintenance of them. Is there any possibility of a different arrangement for private hospitals which do not receive funds from this government or from the provincial government to maintain their building at their expense?

In that respect they will not be in an equal position as compared with the general hospitals under the agreement?

I hope the reporter has indicated that the minister says no because that seems to be an important point.
