City unveils project. (Around the North).
The seniors campus initiative is intended to enhance the availability of services for seniors in the city and will involve the expertise of various northern partners, including the Alzheimer Society, universities and colleges, the local hospital, northern health and long-term care partners and the Northeast Mental Health Centre.
With the capital redevelopment project, a new wing will be added to the front of Pioneer Manor seniors residence, increasing the total number of beds at the centre and upgrading the facility to meet ministry requirements.
Of the $22 million cost, $13 million will come from the city and $9 million from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The project is slated for completion in the summer of 2003.
