Health care services in Radville to move to new facility

All health services in Radville located in the Radville Marian Health Centre will move into the new facility at 840 Conrad Ave. during the week of July 7-11. That includes the doctors’ clinic, laboratory and x-ray, emergency and long term care residents.

Public health and home care services will also move into the new facility during that week from their current locations.

“We are thrilled this day is so close,” says Marga Cugnet, Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) CEO. “The community and the Region have been looking forward to this day for many years. We’ve all worked diligently to reach this point.”

“The current facility was built in 1948 and it has served us well. But health care has changed a lot since those days. Health care practitioners, like therapies technicians and public health nurses, or health educators helping people live well with diabetes or a heart condition, are assisting doctors to look after patients,” she says.  

“As well, people want private bathrooms in their long term care rooms and hallways wide enough to allow for wheelchairs. Big windows will let in the sunshine and air conditioning will keep it cool on the hot days. We are very pleased to be able to provide a modern facility to the Radville community that will continue to provide excellent care and also meet residents’ needs.”

Murray Hlavaka, Chair of the Marian Health Centre Board of Directors, says long term care residents are especially excited to be moving into a spacious, new facility.

“They have carefully watched it grow from the foundations. And the two new long term care houses are just the beginning of the benefits. This facility will offer all our health care services in one location, an improvement over the existing facility.”

The new facility provides 25 long term care rooms in two adjacent wings. One house will be named the Frank Rak House and the second will be named the Donald and Margaret McCracken House. Both families made very large donations toward construction.

Each house has its own kitchen and living room while sharing a generous activities room inside and a large courtyard and serenity garden on the outside. Windows in the rooms and hallways are large. Security is provided with cameras at each entrance door connected to the nursing station.

The long term care houses are separate from the areas providing acute services, home care, public health and therapy services, for privacy and infection control. 

Five multipurpose rooms for clients needing care after surgery, as well as for palliative and respite services are also available.

The doctors’ clinic has space for three doctors and a nurse practitioner and is located adjacent to the emergency room and ambulance garage for convenience. Laboratory and x-ray services are near the front entrance for the convenience of clients.

Some temporary changes will be in effect during the move:

  • The x-ray department will be closed from Mon., June 16 to Sun., July 13 to move the equipment to the new site. It will re-open Mon., July 14.
  • Laboratory services will be closed from Fri., June 27 to Sun., July 13. It will reopen on Mon., July 14. For emergency lab services during that period, please call the facility.
  • Clinic and home care services will not be available on Mon., July 7 when both services move.
  • Public Health will not be available on Tues., July 8 when it moves.
  • Long term care residents will move on Wed., July 9.
