The New Niagara Health Care Complex is currently being constructed at First Street and Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines. Construction began on April 28, 2009 and is expected to open March 24, 2013.
This $1.42 billion investment will accommodate regional programs that have never been available in Niagara, including:
- Comprehensive cancer care at the Walker Family Cancer Centre
- Cardiac Catheterization services at the Heart Investigation Unit
- Longer-term mental health beds
The facility will also act as the hub of regional dialysis services, supported by the permanent dialysis unit recently constructed in Welland and being planned for in Niagara Falls.
The new health-care complex will be environmentally friendly and has been designed to achieve LEED certification. Environmental features include energy efficient lighting, cooling and heating, which will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
