Canada’s Manitoba government is spending C$1.5bn ($1.126bn) to rebuild adult bed towers of Health Sciences Centre (HSC) Winnipeg and expand the University of Manitoba’s Bannatyne Avenue campus.

The six-year project will allow HSC Winnipeg to offer more specialised healthcare services to the people in the province.

It will replace the existing facilities and add a 10-storey building along Sherbrook Street, between the HSC Children’s Hospital and the centre’s rehabilitation and respiratory facility.

The new building will include nearly 240 new private patient rooms, along with more space for complex procedural and diagnostic imaging services.

It will also expand the adult emergency department as well as the associated clinic spaces, to support patient flow and treatment.

The building will also include space to expand the critical care units in the future, to address the clinical capacity requirements.
