The Manitoba government is spending nearly $30 million to fund more than 120 projects to properly maintain a number of health-care facilities in the province.

On the schedule are roof replacements at both the Seven Oaks General Hospital and Pan Am Clinic in Winnipeg.

Outside of the city, mould removal in the medical records archive room at the Thompson General Hospital will see attention, plus roof replacement, vacuum pump upgrades/replacement and phase two of a water booster upgrade.

At the Rest Having Nursing Home in Steinbach, dining room heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) upgrades are on tap, plus associated building controls system modernization and flooring replacement in the dining hall and main public areas.

“It’s important that we regularly invest in the maintenance of our health-care system to make sure repairs are done and the most up-to-date equipment is used to support quality care,” said Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Kelvin Goertzen.

“These investments will ensure that sites continue to meet provincial, national and international standards and keep facilities in good repair.”
