People of Kelvington and area have a new hospital and renovated long-term care facility. Community members, staff, patients and clients joined representatives from the provincial government and the Kelsey Trail Health Region to celebrate the completion of Kelvington’s new integrated health facility.
“Improving the quality of rural health services remains a priority for our government and we are proud to see the completion of this important project,” Kelvington-Wadena MLA Hugh Nerlien said on behalf of Rural and Remote Health Minister Greg Ottenbreit. “The people of Kelvington and the surrounding area will be well served by this new and improved facility.”
Kelvington’s long-term care facility was set to be one of the 13 replaced, but it was decided in July 2012 to renovate the existing Kelvindell Lodge and replace the existing hospital with a new health facility.
The integrated facility features 45 long-term care beds, seven acute care beds, seven multi-purpose clinic rooms and a family room.
