Construction Started on Corner Brook Hospital

Construction has started on the new west coast hospital in Corner Brook.

The first concrete was poured this week.

Currently, all 36 tradespeople working on site are from Newfoundland and Labrador.

The seven-storey, 600,000 square foot facility will be connected to the 145-bed long-term care home currently under construction. The hospital will have 164 beds with the same services currently provided at Western Memorial Regional Hospital, as well as an expanded cancer care program including radiation services.

Construction of the hospital will start later this summer and is anticipated to be completed in 2023.
