Provincial Centre of Excellence for Youth to provide services unavailable in NB

The province has unveiled design plans for the Provincial Centre of Excellence for Youth in Campbellton.

The 15-bed centre will be housed in a new facility to be constructed on the site of the former Restigouche Hospital Centre.

Health Minister Victor Boudreau says the $14.4-million facility will provide youth with complex needs access to services currently not available in New Brunswick.

Construction will begin in the coming months and is expected to be completed next year.
