Several health facilities in the region have been included in a Capital Construction Update released recently by Prairie Mountain Health.


Construction of a new hospital in Neepawa is ongoing, with the target opening set for early 2026.

The facility, which is being built east of Neepawa along the north side of the Yellowhead Highway, will be over four times the size of the current hospital in that community and will feature 60 acute care inpatient beds, as well as an expanded emergency department and the addition of a hemodialysis suite. 


Meanwhile, the construction of an expanded cancer care unit at the Russell Health Centre is into its final stages.

Expected to wrap up later this spring, the expansion will add an additional 33-hundred square feet of space to the existing CancerCare Manitoba Chemotherapy treatment space. 


After opening a relocated Chemotherapy unit this year, work is continuing towards relocating the Endoscapy Unit to the main floor of the Dauphin Regional Health Centre, which is expected to wrap up in the coming months. 

Phase two of their capital project is also underway, which includes the addition of nine inpatient beds - with seven being in the medicine unit and two in the surgical ward, while also renovating the former cancer care space on the third floor into a new physiotherapy unit along with some administrative offices.
