Niverville, MB. August 16, 2017 – Niverville Heritage Holdings Inc. (NHHI) is pleased to announce an agreement in principle with the Town of Niverville, Liver Care Canada, Felipe Campusano and Yves Kimbo for the construction of a new 2,400 sq. ft. diagnostic services centre. Scheduled for completion by fall of 2018, the centre will include diagnostic services including MRI, Ultrasound, X-ray and medical laboratory.
The new Heritage Life Diagnostic Centre will include state of the art imaging and lab services which will support the Heritage Centre’s soon to be opened Santé Ouverte-Open Health Niverville collaborative medical centre, a partnership between Santé Sud-Southern Health, Niverville Medical Clinic, NHHI and the Town of Niverville. The newly constructed Heritage Life Diagnostic Centre will also serve clients from throughout the Province.
Located at the Niverville Heritage Centre, the new Heritage Life Diagnostic Centre will complement and strengthen the community owned not for profit social enterprise campus. The new Heritage Life Diagnostic Centre will be an innovative addition to the existing services on campus that include independent senior’s housing, assisted living, supportive housing, long term care, children’s day care, dental centre, medical centre, restaurant, community health and social services as well as event centre.
NHHI envisions the new Heritage Life Diagnostic Centre to be an innovative solution to provide much needed imaging capacity for organizations like Manitoba Public Insurance, Workers Compensation Board, insurance companies and professional sports teams who currently utilize public facilities, on a fee basis, for imaging services. The new Heritage Life Diagnostic Centre will also provide Manitobans who currently seek imaging services in North Dakota a local option on a graduated fee basis, based on income, through NHHI’s new not for profit Heritage Life Community Health Services division.
This innovative effort remains within the spirit of the Canada Health Act as the new Heritage Life Diagnostic Centre, through a P3 like concept, will be donated to the Town of Niverville free and clear of encumbrances or debt in 25 years. This arrangement, facilitated through NHHI who acts in trust for the Town of Niverville, ensures this innovative initiative supports and sustains Canada’s treasured universal health care system.
