First Patients and Residents Welcomed at Western Long Term Care Home
Patients and residents will be moving into the new Western Long Term Care Home, in a phased in approach this month.
Palliative care and rehabilitative care will open this week, while restorative care will open later in June.
Individuals who are awaiting LTC at Western Memorial Regional Hospital will also be moving into the new home later this month.
These groups have been prioritized to move first to enable capacity at Western Memorial Regional Hospital and Corner Brook Long Term Care Home for a potential surge of COVID-19.
Planning for more residents to move into the home is ongoing and the transition will continue gradually.
Western Long Term Care Home includes 105 LTC beds, 15 restorative care beds, 15 palliative care beds and 10 rehabilitative care beds. Construction of the home was completed in February and it has since been given a new civic address, 110 Health Care Crescent.
