WINNIPEG — The first phase of the Misericordia Health Centre’s redevelopment is complete with the opening of the new $43 million Maryland building.
The project includes the Buhler Eye Care Centre, PRIME program and Ambulatory Diagnostic Centre.
The new Maryland building programs are opening in stages. The provincial Buhler Eye Care Centre — including a new University of Manitoba Ophthalmology Residency program — is fully functional along with diagnostic imaging and a Diagnostic Services Manitoba’s laboratory adjacent to Urgent Care. PRIME, a health centre for seniors, is slated to open in spring 2015 with hiring currently underway.
The province invested $38 million in the two-storey building, while an additional $5 million raised by the Misericordia Health Centre Foundation.
Phase two of the redevelopment project includes the demolition of the 1906 Sherbrook building and the creation of a new building, providing the vital link between the Cornish and Wolseley buildings. The new Sherbrook building will include a 30-foot main entrance atrium with an open second floor level showcasing historical artifacts and a chapel.
