Renovations are underway for Hants Community Hospital’s second operating room

Renovating an unused operating room at the Hants Community Hospital in Windsor will mean 800 more surgeries can be done each year, nearly doubling the annual number of procedures. 

This is part of the QEll Redevelopment Project which will see services transferred from the QEll Health Sciences Centre to support the eventual closure of the Victoria and Centennial buildings at the VG site.

The second of three tenders for construction services was also issued today. This tender is for construction of the exterior of the new additions including masonry, structural steel, metal cladding and roofing.
