The seven-storey, 600,000 square foot facility is being built next to the 145-bed long-term care home near the intersection of Lewin Parkway and Wheelers Road. The 164-bed hospital will have the same services currently provided at Western Memorial Regional Hospital, as well as an expanded cancer care program including radiation services.
The design of the hospital can be viewed online at youtu.be/FRv5AHMny9o.
Over the course of construction, an estimated 4,000 person years of employment and $460 million in GDP is expected to be created.
This new hospital delivers on commitments in The Way Forward to deliver better services and better outcomes for residents.
