COLWOOD, B.C. — More than 300 new long-term care beds are coming for those in need in the Greater Victoria Area.
Island Health has announced its intention to build a $224 million, 306-bed long-term care home in Colwood on Vancouver Island, states a news release.
The project has entered the procurement phase. Construction is expected to begin in 2025 and conclude in 2027.
The Capital Regional Hospital District will be contributing roughly $67 million to the project and the Government of B.C. will contribute $157 million.
The three-storey building will be on a two-hectare parcel of land near the corner of Metchosin Road and Latoria Boulevard in Colwood.
“The Westshore long-term care project is a reflection of our commitment to our community and an investment in our future,” said Kevin Murdoch, chair of the Capital Regional Hospital District, in the release.
“We are proud to be part of this partnership with Island Health and the province, and we believe that this facility will provide a valuable service for many years to come.”
