Construction of New Atrium Underway at Seven Oaks

A new two-story atrium at Seven Oaks General Hospital will soon greet patients and visitors.

The brightly-lit, spacious area will include a new pharmacy, gift shop and new food services. Hospital officials say the atrium was made possible thanks to gifts from the Jessiman Foundation, the Winnipeg Foundation and others.

The anchor development in the $7.8 million Access to Care Project is a medical clinic for new doctors who will see patients in the clinic, treat them in hospital if necessary and support efforts to manage and prevent chronic illness at the Wellness Institute. The hospital still needs to raise $1.2 million for the project.

Construction is underway and the welding for the support beams and superstructure for the atrium will soon be complete.
