Queens Hospital Expansion - Breaks Ground

Construction of the Queens General Health Project to begin
Offical hosital expansion to begin as soon as this month as Premier Darrell Dexter joined with South Shore Health President and CEO, Dr Peter Vaughan and Board Chair Roxie Smith to put the shovel in the ground for the construction of the Queens General Health Project.
“Today is a significant milestone in what is a tremendous community effort,” said Dr Peter Vaughan, President and CEO of South Shore Health. “After years of planning and a clear commitment from the community, the region and the province, construction is beginning on a project that will deliver quality health care to this area for many years to come.”
The Queens General Health project will upgrade and modernize the hospital’s existing 22 bed medical unit and build a new collaborative healthcare facility. The medical unit construction will include private washrooms for every patient, technological and structural improvements to provide for quality patient care, and quiet spaces for patients and families. With a collaborative healthcare centre on site, Queens will offer a new approach to family practice with doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers working together under one roof to deliver services to the sick, promote preventative healthcare, and manage chronic illnesses. Completion of the project is scheduled for the end of 2013.
“This government has shown its commitment to ensuring Nova Scotians have access to the care they need, when and where they need it,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. “The Queens General Hospital has tremendous community support, and today marks another significant step forward in bringing Queens area residents better access to quality primary care.”
In addition to enhancing the quality of care offered to the residents of Queens this project will also provide a positive environment for teaching health care professionals and create new opportunities to host medical, nursing and other health professional students.
This project has been made possible with the generous support of the community, the Queens General Hospital Foundation, the many donors to the 'Keeping Us Strong' fundraising campaign, the Region of Queens Municipality, and the Government of Nova Scotia.

ROSSIGNOL Cultural Centre

Public notice:
Last evening, elegance swept through the halls of Rossignol Centre, of Liverpool NS, that will long be remembered by those who attended.  The audience was entertained by Jack Wynters’ recital of Robert Service’s most popular poetry, in the magnificent English Room; Judy Cleveland in lovely music and song in the Rossignol Hall and, lastly but not least, Bobby Curtola in the Art Gallery hosting the Fashion Show; where ladies presented an amazing line of clothing from Debbie Noel’s fashion shop, Liverpool. The evening closed with Bobby Curtola singing a number of his ‘gold record’ songs; songs to sing along with or just drift along on a wave of memories.
Rossignol Cultural Centre has taken on new life with its new director, Linda Jackson, and this event is just the first of many that will open the Centre to events surrounding and promoting arts and culture.
