WINNIPEG — The pediatric cardiology clinic at the Children’s Hospital-HSC Winnipeg is relocating and expanding after reaching capacity.
The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba has spearheaded a $3.5 million fundraising campaign to help the hospital centralize its clinic next to the new HSC Diagnostic Centre of Excellence building.
The Manitoba government is providing $500,000 towards the campaign, which was matched on Tuesday by Domino’s Pizza Canada CEO, Michael Schlater. Telus also kicked in $107,000.
“We’ve recognized an opportunity to expand and improve a facility that helps thousands of Manitoba families every year,” said Ronan Segrave, interim chief operating officer, HSC.
“Centralizing the pediatric cardiology clinic is a necessary step to improve care and reduce the burden on patients who must travel between buildings for care.”
The relocation allows for improvements including two additional examination rooms, four cardiologist offices and dedicated spaces for services such as ultrasound, EKG testing, and counselling, which currently occupy shared areas at 685 William Avenue.
Construction on the space is expected to begin later this year, with a request for proposals already on the market.
