Additional funding announced for QEII redevelopment project

The provincial government has announced additional funding of $11.47 million for the QEII redevelopment project.

The Dartmouth General Hospital expansion and renovation project will receive $8.58 million towards equipment, furniture, information technology, and lateral support improvements.

Another $2.89 million will be used to demolish part of a provincially-owned warehouse at 10 Acadia Street near the Dartmouth hospital to create more spaces for hospital parking.

Now dubbed the QEII New Generation project, the work includes the expansion and renovations at the Halifax Infirmary site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre, and the construction of a new community outpatient centre at Bayers Lake.

New and renovated operating rooms at Hants Community Hospital in Windsor are already complete.
