Some health service delivery locations are being moved due to construction work at Brandon’s Regional Health Centre (BRHC).

The BRHC expansion project continues with the foundation work of the new building located on the north side of BRHC. Pile driving of posts into the ground close to the Brandon Regional Health Centre's existing wall will start to take place.

This will mean temporary changes inside the hospital where the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit NICU and Maternity Ward are located. Effective February 1, the NICU will be moved to 200 Surgery (2nd floor). Depending on the location of piling driving, some maternity patients may also be transferred to 200 surgery after they deliver. Patients moved may have to share a room with other moms.

Visitation in the NICU may be limited to one person per baby due to space. When visiting, you need to check at the front information desk before going to the Maternity Unit to ensure your family member has not been moved to 200 Surgery. These moves are necessary due to the noise and vibration levels of the pile driving.

This work is expected to be completed in mid-March.
