Construction is now underway on the Mission Community Health Project, which includes a new community health centre and 200-bed campus of care for seniors.
The FVRHD provided $22 million toward the $31.2 million campus of care for seniors project, with the balance of funding coming from Fraser Health and the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation. Fraser Health and the FVRHD view this project as an innovative prototype for communities throughout Fraser Valley. The leased community health centre and campus of care for seniors will help ensure that families can receive primary health care services, access chronic disease management programs and have their residential care needs met while remaining in their own community.
The community health centre is set to open in summer 2013 followed by the campus of care for seniors in spring 2014. This unique service model will provide families in the Fraser Valley with access to integrated health services right in their own backyard.
