New 60-bed nursing home announced for Acadian Peninsula

The provincial government says a new 60 bed nursing home is expected to be open within five years on the Acadian Peninsula.

But Premier Brian Gallant says it's not yet known where or how much it will cost.

He says that will be determined once a tender is selected.

The New Brunswick government promises to build ten new facilities for a total of 600 extra beds by 2023.
