New Waterford project

Premier Stephen McNeil brought his checkbook to CBRM yesterday.

He announced a long-awaited community health centre will be built in New Waterford.  It will have a collaborative-care team as well as other health and community services.  Sister Margie Gillis told the CBC it’s more than just a medical clinic because it will also address many community issues that contribute to diseases such as addictions, mental health; and poverty issues.
