Proponent Selected for Corner Brook Long Term Care Facility #nlpoli

Premier Dwight Ball announced yesterday that Corner Brook Care Partnership has been selected to design, build, finance and maintain a new long-term care facility that will benefit Corner Brook and Western Newfoundland.

The new facility will include 120 long-term care beds, as well as 15 palliative care beds and 10 rehabilitative care beds.

On site activity will begin in the coming days with the facility set to open in spring 2020, generating 380 person years of employment and $43 million in GDP during that time.

The new long-term care facility will require upwards of 200 public sector employees, providing valuable services such as nursing care, laundry, housekeeping and dietary.

The value of the contract with Corner Brook Care Partnership is approximately $120 million. The contract will cover a 30 year period.

The Corner Brook Care Partnership team is led by Plenary Group, which is internationally recognized as a leading developer of health care facilities in North America, and includes Montgomery Sisam Architects, and two businesses, Marco Services as the builder, and G.J. Cahill as the service provider, from Newfoundland and Labrador.

This new facility marks the beginning of construction on a new Western Memorial Regional Hospital campus in Corner Brook. A RFQ for the new Corner Brook Hospital is expected to be announced before the end of the year.
