IMPROVEMENTS TO NORTHWEST ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE CENTRE
Keewatin Yathé Health District is moving ahead with plans to renovate and
upgrade two district health facilities.
Health Minister Pat Atkinson gave approval-in-principle to district plans to
renovate the Northwest Alcohol and Drug Abuse Centre, and upgrade the existing
elevator at St. Joseph's Hospital in Ile-a-la-Crosse.
"Reinvesting in local health care facilities is an essential part of our goal
to improve service delivery and ensure quality of care for people throughout
the province," Atkinson said.
Province-wide, Saskatchewan Health will spend $41.1 million on capital projects
this year. Of this amount, $7.7 million is available for new projects and
$33.4 million is committed to previously approved projects.
Saskatchewan Health officials will continue to work with the Keewatin Yathe
Health District to finalize plans for capital projects.
