Saskatchewan Invests In New Long-Term Care Beds In Regina

Released on July 28, 2021

The province is moving forward with a plan to develop approximately 600 long-term care beds in Regina, to meet the needs of seniors and build capacity for the future.

Government today announced the addition of nearly 250 specialized long-term care beds, to support the needs of residents with dementia, mental health needs and complex behavioural needs.  This will be followed by the addition of more than 350 standard long-term care beds.  The specific bed distribution will be finalized through detailed planning.

"We are committed to providing the best possible services for residents who need long-term care in Regina and area," Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, Seniors, and Rural and Remote Health Everett Hindley said.  "This significant project to add new beds will meet their needs and ensure safe and healthy environments for both residents and staff."

"We are looking forward to beginning the detailed planning phase for these important long-term care spaces," Minister of SaskBuilds and Procurement Jim Reiter said.  "The development of these long-term care beds will help to improve quality of life for residents, their families and facility staff."

The Ministry of SaskBuilds and Procurement is working with the Ministry of Health and the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) on planning and design for the specialized bed facility that will be owned and operated by the SHA.

Timelines for construction of the specialized beds will be confirmed later this year.  The Ministry of SaskBuilds and Procurement will work with the Ministry of Health and the SHA to develop the approach to deliver the remaining standard beds.

This project to replace and revitalize long-term care beds in Regina is part of the province's $2 billion stimulus plan to build a strong Saskatchewan and stimulate the province's economic recovery from the impact of the pandemic. 

In 2019, the SHA and the Ministry of Health issued a Request for Proposals to replace Regina Pioneer Village.  The due diligence completed as part of this process will be carried forward into the strategy to revitalize long-term care in Regina, including the replacement of Regina Pioneer Village.
