CapitalCare Norwood Project will begin construction in Summer 2019
The Government of Alberta announced that construction will begin on Edmonton’s CapitalCare Norwood Redevelopment project next summer. DIALOG’s integrated architecture, engineering, interior design, landscape architecture and planning team is proud to design this new continuing care centre for Albertans.
The extensive renovation, redevelopment and expansion will include a new 40,000-square-metre main building and will increase the number of post-acute, complex long-term care and palliative care beds from 205 to 350. This will improve the operation of the acute care and continuing care systems in Edmonton by decreasing the demand for emergency department visits and inpatient acute care services, and reducing continuing care placement.
“The Norwood project will support Albertans who need our help the most, like seniors and adults living with disabilities, with access to world-class care.”
-Sandra Jansen, Minister of Infrastructure
The $364-million project will also improve patient-centred care by providing centrally located programs and services, such as a specialty dental clinic and pulmonary rehabilitation program. The new building is expected to be complete in 2022 and the Angus McGugan Pavilion palliative care redevelopment is expected to be complete in 2023.
“With the redevelopment of CapitalCare Norwood, we are transforming what was once a traditional long-term care centre into a centre of excellence for innovation in aging that is unique in Alberta. We are bringing together the three pivotal aspects of the continuing care system – complex long-term care, post-acute care, and community care. This project will help Alberta better prepare for the challenges of an aging population.”
-Francine Drisner, CEO, CapitalCare
