Government issued a tender for the construction of a second operating room for the Hants Community Hospital on June 2.
Currently, the Hants Community Hospital has one functional operating room. A second operating room, dating back to when the hospital was originally built in 1976, will be renovated and prepared for use. This will mean 800 more surgeries at the hospital each year, nearly doubling the annual number of procedures.
The deadline for submissions is June 30. Details of the request for proposals are available at http://novascotia.ca/tenders/tenders/ns-tenders.aspx.
