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.
