Province investing nearly $28 million in health-care capital projects
The redevelopment of the emergency department at the Pine Falls Health Complex is one of over 100 projects receiving a poriton of the $28 Million earmarked for healthcare captial projects.
Other projects in the region include:
• Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home: nurse call system replacement
• Pine Falls Health Complex: medical vacuum pump replacement
Each year, the regional health authorities, CancerCare Manitoba, Shared Health and the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba submit requests for safety and security projects at sites across the province. Timely equipment replacements, upgrades and repairs ensure services continue to be available for patients.
This year, the province is providing more than $11.4 million for 13 projects projected to cost more than $500,000, and $16.5 million for 104 projects expected to cost less than $500,000.
Specific cost estimates are not being released, as they are subject to the tendering process, the minister noted. He added work will begin once the projects are publicly tendered and awarded.
