The Notley government today announced construction will begin next month on new long term care beds in northeast Calgary.
The province is providing $5-million to the Chinese Christian Wing Kei Nursing home association through the Alberta Supportive Living Initiative.
The project will create 78 new long-term beds at the Wing Kei Greenview Phase Two.
That’s triple the 24 long-term care beds originally planned.
The government has earmarked $365-million as a commitment to build 2,000 long-term care and dementia spaces in the next four years.
