The Manitoba government has approved over 120 health-care facility maintenance projects across the province, totaling nearly $30 million in funding.
- Mould remediation in the medical records archive room at the Thompson General Hospital in Thompson, MB, as well as vacuum pump upgrades/replacement and phase two of a water booster upgrade.
- Sprinkler installation at the Whitemouth, MB District Health Centre/Personal Care Home
- Dining room HVAC upgrades and associated building controls system modernization in the dining hall and main public areas at the Rest Haven Nursing Home in Steinbach, MB.
The province expects 44 projects to be completed in 2018 – a total cost of $21.8 million. An additional $6.8 million will address the final 80 projects. The remaining $1.4 million will be held in reserve for emergent project needs.
Other projects that will begin later this year include the installation of sprinkler systems and upgrades to fire safety equipment across Manitoba. www.gov.mb.ca
