NRHD News Release - New Long-Term Care Home Announced for the Region

The Nanaimo Regional Hospital District (NRHD) Board would like to thank the Province of British Columbia for approving the construction of a new long-term care facility in the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN). The capital cost of the project is $285.76 million. Island Health will build, own and operate the facility. The Nanaimo Regional Hospital District is contributing ­$114.3 million to the project. Our region has a significant shortage of long-term care beds. As a result of long waitlists, people who would be better cared for in specialized facilities designed to meet complex care needs are placed in acute care beds at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH).
