Stevenson Memorial Hospital is undergoing a large project that will see patient room windows replaced.

The funds were provided through a Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF) grant from the Ministry of Health.

The hospital received $1,058,000 in HIRF funding to replace the original windows, which are almost 60 years old.

The new windows will increase efficiency with heating and cooling, lower energy costs, and reduce noise and vibration – a key element as the hospital plans to start construction on a new hospital building next year.

“This is a significant project to improve efficiency including heating and cooling in our current hospital facility, as we work towards building a new hospital for our community,” said Jody Levac, president and CEO of SMH. “We are continuously making improvements as best we can to our facility that are patient-minded while planning for the future.”

The project will take around two months to complete, and will replace windows in the medical/surgical inpatient unit, outpatient department, obstetrics, day surgery, and dialysis units. The project will provide energy cost savings for the long term and give the dated facility a facelift.

The hospital is getting ready to start the construction of a new 152,000-square-foot facility that will wrap around the current hospital building.
