In an announcement made today, Health Minister Maureen MacDonald says the provincial government will invest $22-million into infrastructure and upgrades for Nova Scotia hospitals.
Global Maritimes reports that the majority of the funds, $13.5 million will go towards increasing energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and occupational health and safety. The rest of the money will be used for elevator and fire safety upgrades among other routine operational costs.
The funds are slated to come out of the province's spring budget so this head-start installment comes as a surprise. What do you think Haligonia?
