South West Health District is moving ahead with plans to renovate and upgrade

the Shaunavon Hospital.

Health Minister Pat Atkinson gave approval-in-principle to district plans to

consolidate home care, public health and community service programs in one

location. The project includes renovations to the emergency room and other key

areas of the hospital.

"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.

The South West Health District will continue to work with the department to

finalize two ongoing projects at the Leader Clinic and Leader Hospital.
