After a thorough procurement process, Interior Health has awarded a contract for the development of 60 residential care beds in Salmon Arm to Vantage Living Inc.
“These new residential care beds are a vital investment to serve seniors and others who require this high level of care. These beds will provide a comfortable, home-like environment to support residents.” said Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo.
Vantage Living plans to expand its existing residential care facility in Salmon Arm, Mount Ida Mews, to accommodate 60 additional beds.
“We are honoured to have been awarded this contract giving Vantage Living the opportunity to provide care and housing for an additional 60 seniors from Salmon Arm and the surrounding communities, adding to the 72 residents currently living at Mount Ida Mews. We look forward to continuing to build on the strong relationship we have with Interior Health,” said Vantage Living President Johann Burger.
The new beds are expected to open in summer 2018. For more information on the news release from Interior Health, click here: IHA Announcement-MIM Phase 2
