CBRM Community-Based Paramedic Program

A new Community-Based Paramedic Program is coming to CBRM. Paramedics will care for patients at home, do follow-up visits after they’ve been discharged from the hospital, and support residents with chronic diseases, all of which will reduce unnecessary trips to emergency departments.

Jeff Fraser, Director of Provincial Operations, Emergency Health Services, speaks to the value of this new program.
 

Cape Breton Cancer Centre to Double in Size

The Cape Breton Cancer Centre is doubling in size. An additional 20,000 square feet of space will better meet the needs of patients, families and communities across Cape Breton and other parts of the province. An expanded Cancer Centre will mean more treatment and support care services, with more clinical trials, education and research.

Dr. Rod McGory, Surgeon, discusses the impact this redevelopment.

Planning continues with local health professionals engaged

Functional planning for the CBRM health redevelopment project started in summer 2018 and is expected to take nine to 12 months.

The work includes reviewing and updating previous plans, developing a detailed plan for all services and facilities involved, and determining the location and number of hospital beds for the area. Local site leads are in place. Local health professionals have been and will continue to be part of this planning work.
