Construction to begin on two floors at Vernon hospital

There will be a ceremony Wednesday to launch construction of the new inpatient units at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

The ceremony is set for 11 a.m.

The two floors will contain 60 beds, with 14 being new and 46 relocating from elsewhere in the hospital. The majority of the 60 beds on floors six and seven will be in private rooms complete with their own washrooms.

The project cost of $29.6 million is being shared between the provincial government, the North Okanagan-Columbia-Shuswap Regional Hospital District and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation.
