Around Town: New Residential Care Beds to be Built in Campbell River by 2017
Island Health issued a Request for Proposals in 2014 seeking proponents to own and operate 40 new community-based care beds in Campbell River by 2017. Following an extensive evaluation process, Park Place Seniors has been selected as the preferred proponent.
Park Place Seniors owns and operates the New Horizons residential care facility in Campbell River and will build a new residential care wing on its existing facility to house the 40 new publicly-funded beds. The operator will also be building five new private pay beds at the same location for a total residential care capacity of 126 publicly-funded and 13 private pay beds.
Island Health and Park Place Seniors will work toward finalizing a project development agreement early in 2015. Construction is expected to take 21 months, with the new wing to open in 2017. Construction costs of the new facility will be in the range of $9 million, with annual operation costs for the 40 beds, funded by Island Health, in the range of $2 million.
