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.
Timelines for service changes, construction and renovations will be determined though this process. The focus is to get the overall project, including the construction, done as soon as possible.
