ROSETOWN CELEBRATES LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY GRAND OPENING

Residents of Rosetown and area are benefiting from a new long-term care facility.  Minister responsible for Rural and Remote Health Randy Weekes joined local residents at a grand opening ceremony to celebrate the completion of the Rosetown District Health Centre’s long-term care facility, Rose Villa.

“The completion of Rose Villa is a significant milestone in the renewal of long-term care facilities in our province,” Weekes said.  “This project is another example of our government’s commitment to improving health care infrastructure in the province and providing a better quality of life for Saskatchewan seniors living in long-term care.”

Rose Villa replaces the Wheatbelt Centennial Lodge and the Rosetown Health Centre Nursing Wing.

Rose Villa has 54 long-term care beds and offers a comprehensive range of health services, larger private rooms, and state-of-the-art equipment.  Long-term care residents moved into the facility in March 2014.

“The completion of this new facility demonstrates how strong local, regional, and provincial partnerships result in better care for our residents,” Heartland Health Region Board Chair Richard Anderson said.  “This modern building incorporates many features that support our staff to provide resident-focused care in a safe work environment.”
 
“I would like to thank the citizens of Rosetown and our partner municipalities” Rosetown Mayor Brian Gerow said.  “Their contributions made this a reality today,.  I would also like to thank the government for recognizing the need for change, and making it a reality today.”
 
“There is much to celebrate about the opening of this grand senior’s home - the generosity of a community, the foresight of urban and rural municipalities and the long-term vision of our provincial government,” Rosetown and District Health Foundation Chair Marcel Dubois said.

In total, $152.8 million has been invested toward the replacement of 13 long-term care facilities across the province.

The provincial government, the Rosetown and District Health Foundation, and area municipalities together invested $24 million in this long-term care project.  The provincial share is $19.2 million.
