Emergency Department renovations well underway in three PMH health centres
Prairie Mountain Health (PMH) continues to move forward on several major construction and renovation projects in partnership with Manitoba Health and Shared Health. There are three important Emergency Department renovation projects occurring in the Killarney, Souris and Virden Health Centers.
These Emergency Department (ED) renovations will remodel the EDs so that they can provide:
- dedicated space for registration and triage for those attending the ED. This will provide greater privacy but also better sight lines for staff to view patients and the waiting area;
- refreshed treatment spaces (e.g., new paint, flooring, etc.); and
- improved wayfinding for those arriving at the Emergency Department and for those coming to visit inpatients.
PMH’s Regional Lead of Clinical Services Planning, Debbie Poole, stated: “We are very appreciative of the physician and staff involvement in the renovation planning and look forward to opening day where we can share the new look with the community.”
PMH remains committed to providing timely updates for patients, staff and community residents as the renovations progress through various stages.
Construction completion on these ED renovations is anticipated in the Fall of 2023. The cost of the three projects together totals over $ 1 million.
