The infrastructure renewal project at South Bruce Grey Health Centre’s Kincardine site is in full swing, with work underway to replace the facility’s boilers, chillers and other essential equipment to ensure patient and staff comfort.

 

In September 2016, South Bruce Grey Health Centre received a $3 million dollar Exceptional Circumstance Project Grant from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to fund this initiative.

 

Attempts to get Ministry approval to redevelop the aging facility have been ongoing since 2011, when an approved plan to redevelop was cancelled. The facility is approximately 60 years old, with some parts of the building approaching 100 years of age. Due to time and wear, the building’s major electrical, mechanical and architectural systems are nearing the end of their useful life cycle.

 

“We have had to explore many avenues to get to where we are today, and it’s very satisfying to see improvements being made, “says Paul Rosebush, President and CEO. “We still have a significant amount of work to do, but we are committed to ensuring that the Kincardine hospital is redeveloped to meet the needs of our patients and staff for years to come.”

 

In July 2016 a capital request was submitted to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to address the rest of the much needed infrastructure improvements, including renovations to expand/enhance the Emergency Department, Laboratory, Registration and waiting areas, Ambulatory Care and other general improvements across the site. Ministry approval on this request is pending.
