Leader and District Integrated Healthcare Facility Construction Nears Completion
The capital expansion project in Leader, including various renovations and enhancements to the interior of the existing long-term care side of the facility, continues to reach new construction milestones and remains on schedule to open its doors as the Leader and District Integrated Healthcare Facility this summer. The south home, the first of three houses to undergo renovations at the Western Senior Citizens Home, has been re-occupied since the end of October 2017 and the west home was re-occupied in January 2018. The north home, the third and final home to be completely renovated, is scheduled for residents to begin to move into their new space this week. When the expansion project and renovation work is complete the facility will be renamed, as decided by community members, the Leader and District Integrated Healthcare Facility. It will be the sole location of all of the community's health services bringing together acute care, emergency medical services, community health services, primary health care and long-term care.
