Manitoba Getting New Hospital

WINNIPEG - Manitoba is getting a new hospital. Premier Heather Stefanson says it will be built in Neepawa at a cost of $127 million.

“Across the province, strategic investments in modern buildings, equipment and technology will support the delivery of many health services locally, improve access and wait times, and reduce the need for many patients to travel to Winnipeg for care,” said Stefanson. “By investing in the new Neepawa Hospital, our government is building a strong foundation for the future of health care in this region of our province, a future that will offer reliable, consistent and high-quality health services.”

The hospital will have 60 acute care beds and an expanded emergency department with an ambulance bay.

The site for the build has not been finalized yet. The plan is to open the hospital in 2025.
