Move delayed to Kipling Integrated Health Centre

The move from existing health facilities in Kipling to the new Kipling Integrated Health Centre has been delayed to Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014.

Long term care residents of Willowdale Lodge and most health services located in the Kipling Memorial Hospital were to have moved on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 to the new facility at 906 Industrial Drive.

“Unfortunately, the move has been delayed. We are disappointed, but looking forward to the move on December 9,” says Marga Cugnet, President and CEO, Sun Country Health Region.

“Some items needed to be completed and to make the move as smooth as possible for our residents, patients and staff, we want to be sure all systems are operating to their full capacity,” she said.

The new facility has three distinct areas: two houses for 32 long term care residents and one respite bed; an acute care wing for 12 patients; an adjacent area for emergencies and services like lab, x-ray and physiotherapy, and three emergency bays for ambulances and patient disembarking.

A large parking lot is available at the front of the facility for patients and visitors.

Home care and Mental Health/Addiction services will remain after December 9 in the Kipling Memorial Hospital until a later date. The community will be notified when those services are moved.

Emergency services will be available at the new facility after 1 p.m. on the day of the move, Dec. 9. The lab will open in the new facility on the same day.

Telephone numbers for health care services will remain the same in the new facility.
