Invermay Health Centre
In January, 2013 some structural damage and air quality concerns were discovered which required repairs at Invermay Health Center. This necessitated temporary suspension of visiting health services and temporary relocation of the long-term care residents to health facilities in neighbouring communities.
Invermay repairs are progressing well. The interior work in the resident areas is slated for completion by the end of September, 2013. The residents will be assisted with move back to the facility in mid-October. The work on the exterior and area that houses visiting services will continue in October, with visiting services returning to the facility early in November 2013.
Canora Gateway Lodge
In March, 2013 a beam cracked in the dining room ceiling of Canora Gateway Lodge.
When the beam cracked, quick actions by the staff and management ensured the safety of all residents and staff. Since then, the team has worked together to provide ongoing quality of care with interim dining arrangements while the dining room is out of service.
The Canora Gateway Lodge repairs were delayed due to lack of response to the project tender, issued in July. The health region has split the tender and is in the process of obtaining quotes on various components of the repairs in order to move the project ahead, as soon as possible.
