IMPROVEMENTS TO LOCAL HEALTH FACILITIES
The Rolling Hills Health District is moving ahead with plans to upgrade the
Mankota Prairie View Health Centre and the Herbert Nursing Home.
Health Minister Pat Atkinson gave approval-in-principle to district plans that
address urgent fire safety needs, Occupational Health & Safety corrections,
maintenance work and other upgrades.
"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.
Rolling Hills Health District will continue to work with the department to
finalize capital projects.
