The province has announced plans to spend $31.6 million to expand the Selkirk Regional Health Centre.
The goal is to increase the number of acute care inpatient beds at the facility so it can play a larger role in Manitoba’s surgery program.
The money will support the addition of 30 new acute care inpatient beds, improving the regional health-care service delivery hub’s ability to treat and monitor sicker patients. The hope is to have it deliver more locally-based care to inpatients while increasing the number of surgical procedure patients the hospital can handle.
Planned renovations also include some design changes meant to improve patient flow and expand the treatment capacity of the emergency department.
Construction is expected to start next year.
