Nursing home announced for Chaleur Region

New Brunswick Premier was in Bathurst on Tuesday to announce a new 60-bed nursing home facility for the Chaleur region.

The exact cost and location of the facility is not yet known, and Brian Gallant says that will be determined through the tender process.

The announcement is part of the government's commitment to build ten new facilities for a total of 600 extra beds by 2023.

The Premier has been touring the province announcing the new facilities in each of the communities.
