Dartmouth and Halifax Residents to Have Better Access to Dialysis

Dartmouth General Hospital and the Halifax Infirmary site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre will each receive six new dialysis chairs as part of the QEII redevelopment project.

Community Services Minister Joanne Bernard, on behalf of Health and Wellness Minister Leo Glavine, announced the expansions today, April 21. The new dialysis chairs will provide 60 more patients with essential treatment closer to their homes.

Site Selected for New Community Outpatient Centre

A site has been selected for the new Community Outpatient Centre that will be built as part of the QEII redevelopment project.

Premier Stephen McNeil announced today, April 20, that the new centre will be located at the Bayers Lake Business Park in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

“This is a significant step in the QEII redevelopment project,” said Premier McNeil. “Not every service needs to be offered in downtown Halifax. We often hear Nova Scotians say traffic and parking are major concerns when travelling to the VG site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

Leading-Edge Renovations at Halifax Infirmary Moving Forward

One of Canada's leading architectural firms has been awarded the contract to design state-of-the-art operating rooms and interventional suites at the Halifax Infirmary, part of the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

"Nova Scotia is taking the lead in providing specialized operating rooms in eastern Canada," said Leo Glavine, Minister of Health and Wellness. "We are excited to enhance our surgical and interventional services which will benefit patient care."

Second Operating Room for Hants Community Hospital

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

Premier Stephen McNeil and Janet Knox, Nova Scotia Health Authority president and CEO, unveiled plans to revitalize a second operating room at the hospital today, March 16.

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.

First Construction Tender Issued for Expansion of Dartmouth General Hospital

The first tender for construction services at the Dartmouth General Hospital was issued today, March 14. This expansion and renovation is part of the QEII redevelopment project.

Progress Continues for Halifax Infirmary and Hants Community Hospital

The province continues to move forward with planned renovations to the Halifax Infirmary building of the QEII Health Sciences Centre and updates to the operating room at the Hants Community Hospital.

A request for proposals for project management services for the planned renovations at the two hospitals was issued today, March 2. The projects are part of the QEII redevelopment project.

The services required include coordinating and managing the Halifax Infirmary and Hants Community Hospital from design to building to completion.

Advisory Services Sought for the QEII Redevelopment Project

Government is considering its options for the design, construction, finance and infrastructure maintenance of the QEII redevelopment project, including province-led and private sector-led approaches.

A request for supplier qualifications for public-private partnership (P3) advisory services was issued today, Jan. 25.

"We have said all along we will consider all delivery options to see what's best financially and operationally," said Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Geoff MacLellan.

Design Starting for Hants Community Hospital Upgrades

As part of the QEII redevelopment project, design work will begin in 2017 to revitalize an unused operating room at the Hants Community Hospital in Windsor.

Construction is expected to begin in the summer or fall of 2017 and the new operating room is expected to open by the spring of 2018.

"Performing more surgeries outside the downtown core of Halifax is part of our overall plan to connect more Nova Scotians with the health care they need," said Health and Wellness Minister Leo Glavine.

One of Canada's top architecture and design firms will begin the detailed planning process needed to determine what the QEII Health Sciences Centre redevelopment project will look like, and where services will be located.
