Capital Projects in Progress within Our Region
A capital project is a project that involves the construction of either new facilities or making significant, long-term renewal improvements to existing facilities.
Brandon Regional Health Centre
This nearly $70 million expansion project will enhance health services in Brandon, establishing the Brandon Regional Health Centre (BRHC) as a centralized hub of specialized services for western Manitoba. The expansion and renovation of clinical spaces within the health centre includes:
- 30 additional medicine beds,
- a new 16-bed intensive care unit with additional staffed adult beds to meet the increasing demands of the health region and the province, and
- a renovated and expanded neonatal intensive care unit.
Western Manitoba Cancer Centre (Brandon)
The expanded and renovated Western Manitoba Cancer Centre will serve as a regional cancer hub, providing enhanced cancer services for patients from across western Manitoba. The project will include:
- an anticipated 9,400-sq.-ft. expansion as well as renovation of existing space including additional exam rooms and treatment spaces; and
- a new medical linear accelerator (LINAC), commonly used for delivering external beam radiation treatments to patients with cancer.
- a Centre for Hope that will provide supportive care services to Westman patients and families for all cancers, providing a continuum of care that starts at the point of diagnosis and includes education, services, and programming throughout a patient’s cancer journey.
Manitobans living in Western Manitoba will benefit from a new hospital in Neepawa.
Features of the new facility, which will replace the existing Neepawa Health Centre, include:
- At least 60 acute care inpatient beds, up from 35 at the current Neepawa site;
- An expanded emergency department designed to best practice standards that includes treatment and assessment rooms, a trauma room, stretcher bay and an ambulance bay; and
- Enhanced space for a number of programs, such as surgery, diagnostics, and palliative care as well as various outpatient services, including dialysis and chemotherapy
The new facility is expected to be at least twice the size of the current site. Construction is tentatively slated for completion in 2025.
