The provincial government is investing $23.1 million from the 2018-19 capital budget to continue construction of a five-storey addition at the Chaleur Regional Hospital.

The addition, which joins the hospital’s west facade, will total 15,712 square metres (169,130 square feet). There will also be renovations to 9,360 square metres (100,750 square feet) of space on all five floors of the front tower. The project will create room for a maternal, newborn and pediatrics unit, as well as other units for electrodiagnostics, ambulatory procedures and ambulatory care.

“This afternoon’s announcement clearly shows that we are committed to patients’ health and to the quality of care they receive,” said Vitalité Health Network president and CEO Gilles Lanteigne. “Therefore, the renovations, as well as the expansion of the Chaleur Regional Hospital, will enable our health professionals to provide a range of superior services which will certainly contribute to improving the level of health of the population, as mentioned in our 2017-20 Strategic Plan.”

The entire $217-million project is expected to be completed by December 2024.
