Western Memorial Regional Hospital and the Corner Brook Interfaith Cottages, both in Corner Brook, will receive $2.1 million in new equipment and upgrades, the provincial government announced today.
The Corner Brook hospital will receive $1.8 million in new equipment, including scope and equipment replacements, orthopedic equipment, MRI upgrades and four new dialysis machines, as well as $200,000 to renovate three rooms for bariatric (weight-loss surgery) patients.
