Samuel Golubchuk died a natural death on June 24, 2005; at Grace Hospital in Winnipeg, only after his family got a court order to stop the doctors at Grace Hospital from pulling the feeding tube and respirator from Golubchuk, against his wishes and the consent of his family.

Grace hospital has now decided to seek a new name. This may be because of the media attention from the Golubchuk trial, or this may be because the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority has taken over control of the hospital from the Salvation Army.
The proposed names include:
St. James General Hospital
Sturgeon Creek General Hospital
Assiniboine Trails General Hospital
Winnipeg West General Hospital.
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is seeking input into choosing a new name.
The Grace Hospital has operated under that name for more than 100 years.
