A new location means quicker construction for Fort McMurray's long term care centre.
Mayor Melissa Blake telling Fort McMurray News, it doesn't matter where the facility goes, as long as it gets built soon, and offers reliable access to health care services.
I would think anybody who is looking at the immediate term needs of people who already have continuing care within their family or for their family members is going to be very frustrated by each new change that comes, what I've been reassured of by the province is that this in fact is a site that will make it much more expedient
The province announced Friday that a 100-bed long-term care centre will now be built in Parsons Creek, and not adjacent to the hospital, as announced in July.
Construction is expected to begin in fall 2012, with completion slated for the spring of 2014.
