IMPROVEMENTS TO ASSINIBOIA NURSING HOME
The South Country Health District is moving ahead with plans to renovate
Assiniboia's Ross Payant Lodge.
Health Minister Pat Atkinson gave approval-in-principle to district plans to
renovate residents' rooms, the nursing station and other areas of the lodge.
"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.
South Country Health District will continue to work with the department to
finalize capital projects, including an ongoing project to add a long-term care
wing to the hospital.
