  • Print

The province is moving ahead with the construction of three new medical and social service ACCESS Centres in Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) has issued a request for proposals from developers to bid on the design and construction of the new centres, which will be located in St. Boniface, St. Vital and southwest Winnipeg.

Health Minister Theresa Oswald said in a news release that the new centres will make health care more accessible and convenient.

The three new ACCESS Centres will include primary-care clinics with doctors and nurse practitioners, said Oswald.

Also available will be such services as home care, mental health treatment, dieticians, pharmacists, social workers, and assistance for seniors and families with finding child care, housing, employment and income assistance.

The three new centres are in addition to the three centres already established in River East, Transcona and downtown and two under construction in St. James and northwest Winnipeg.

The provincial government has committed to building 22 new health clinics around the province including ACCESS Centres, QuickCare clinics and community care clinics as part of a commitment to ensure all Manitobans have access to a family doctor by 2015, said Oswald.
