The Manitoba government has green-lit construction on a new 10-bed health care centre in Notre Dame de Lourdes.
The $20.8 million facility will offer bilingual emergency and urgent care services, in-patient care diagnostic services and out-patient services. The new health centre’s kitchen will also serve the personal care home.
“Building this new facility next to the personal care home will make it easier for residents to receive care at the health centre without needing to be transferred,” Premier Greg Selinger said.
The health centre also partners with Ste. Anne Hospital and St. Boniface Hospital to provide bilingual education for medical students from the University of Manitoba, University of Sherbrooke and the University of Ottawa.
Construction is expected to be complete by the spring of 2016.
