Fischer Place/Mill Site Lodge beds to be opened

Fourteen new residential care beds will be ready next spring

Interior Health (IH) announced today (Sept. 8) it has approved 243 new residential care beds.

The health authority stated the announcement follows a review of several communities. The review criteria included “current demographics, wait times, referral patterns, complexity of residents, and population projections.”

A Request for Proposals (RFP) will be issued for the beds later this month and it’s expected they will be ready for the summer of 2018.

Additionally, 100 Mile House will receive 14 new beds that have already set aside at Fischer Place/Mill Site Lodge, and they should be ready for next spring.
