The construction of a new oncology department and the redevelopment of an expanded emergency department will soon be underway at Victoria General Hospital in Winnipeg, to ensure continued access to quality care for patients, Health Minister Theresa Oswald announced last week. “It is important that we continue to strive to make Manitoba hospitals world-class facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and quality services,” Oswald said. “Today’s investment in Victoria General Hospital will ensure the facility remains on the leading edge of health-care service delivery in Manitoba.”

Plans call for an expanded emergency department, a new oncology department, a new entrance lobby and additional office space. Construction will adhere to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification for environmentally-sound development under the Canadian Green Building Council rating system.

The province is investing more than $13 million in the redevelopment project, with the Victoria General Hospital Foundation committing an additional $8.5 million.

Construction of the redevelopment is to be begin in April 2007. Complementing the redevelopment plans, Healthy Living Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross also announced the official opening of the Mature Women’s Centre.

The relocation of services for the centre from Health Sciences Centre to Victoria General Hospital has more than doubled the size of the clinic and expanded available services. The province has invested more than $1 million to develop the new space, which allows for more efficient patient care, increased staffing and more programs.
