Cardiac care funding revealed for Kelowna General Hospital (Canada)

"First came news of the program. Now comes news of the building to house it in. Less than a year after the B.C. government approved Kelowna General Hospital as the fifth site in the province to provide full cardiac care service - including open heart surgery - Premier Gordon Campbell has announced $448.2 million to build a new, stand-alone building and adjacent clinical support building to house the new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre. The building, for years the subject of intense lobbying by local doctors and health authority officials, will be a 12,970-square-metre, five-storey structure that will replace the existing, aging Pandosy building at the hospital. As part of the project, a new 7,850-square-metre clinical support building will also be created and there will be renovations to the existing Royal and Strathcona buildings" - Kelowna Capital News
