More people in Prince George will have access to long-term care as Providence Living and Northern Health prepare to build a new care home with 200 beds.
Providence and Northern Health have signed an agreement to build a long-term care home that will add 200 beds in Prince George at 6500 Southridge Ave. Providence, in partnership with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Prince George, is contributing the land. This is the first new long-term care facility to be built in Prince George in 15 years.
Providence will build and operate the long-term care home in partnership with Northern Health. The first step will be the design phase followed by the procurement phase that will identify contractors for the design and construction, which is expected to start in fall 2024.
