Swift Current Long-Term Care Facility On-Time and On-Budget

Released on May 1, 2015

Construction on the new long-term care centre in Swift Current is moving forward on-time and on-budget to meet its planned opening in spring 2016.

“We are pleased with the progress that has been made on the facility,” SaskBuilds Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “There will be a lot of activity on the site this spring and summer, which is benefiting a number of businesses in Swift Current and across the province.”

To date, Plenary Health, the private partner team building the facility, has awarded these Saskatchewan businesses with contracts:
  • All Weather Windows, Regina – for PVC windows;
  • Altus Geomatics, Swift Current – for surveying;
  • Humboldt Electric Ltd., Saskatoon – for electrical services;
  • Knudsen Excavating Ltd., Swift Current –  for site services;
  • Modern Niagara, Saskatoon – for mechanical services;
  • Montgrand Reinforcing, Lebret – for reinforcing steel install;
  • Pacer Projects Corporation (through Superior Foundations), Regina - for pilings;
  • PCL, Regina – for concrete foundations (grade beam and pile caps);
  • Procyk Bros. Transport Inc., Swift Current – for building backfill;
  • QSI Interiors Ltd., Regina – for exterior steel studs;
  • Stantec Architecture Ltd., Regina – for design services;
  • Wiebe Contracting Ltd., Swift Current – for site stripping and excavation.
A construction camera is capturing each step of the facility’s progress with the option to view a time lapse feature www.cypresshealth.ca/scltc.

The new facility is being constructed using a public-private partnership (P3), which is saving taxpayers $16 million.  A total investment of $108.5 million is being made in the facility including the cost of design, construction, finance and maintenance in 2014 dollars.

The Cypress Health Region will maintain full ownership of the facility and will operate all aspects of the direct care provided within the facility.  Health region staff will provide services for residents and maintain the provincial standards and guidelines that have been set for long-term care programs and services within the province.

The new facility will replace three aged facilities: Swift Current Care Centre, Prairie Pioneers Lodge and Palliser Regional Care Centre.
