Selkirk Regional Health Centre Expansion

Exterior of the new 30 bed inpatient addition at Selkirk Regional Health Centre.

As announced in December 2021, the Government of Manitoba is enhancing health services at Selkirk Regional Health Centre. The investment will fund a significant expansion of the facility, increasing acute care inpatient beds by 30, expand treatment capacity within the emergency department, and enhancing Selkirk’s ability to treat and monitor patients. The emergency department renovation is completed as of March, 2024.

The site, which provides a wide variety of health services for the region, will be further established with more services, including surgical and inpatient care. The new beds will allow care to be delivered locally for an increased number of inpatients and a higher volume of surgical and endoscopy patients. Surgeries performed at the site will be increased when the renovations are complete. Endoscopy procedures performed at the site have already been increased.
