ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A new long-term care facility for Newfoundland, scheduled to open in 2013, will be built in the Pleasantville area of St. John's.
Health Minister Jerome Kennedy announced the location today.
The new home will have two, four-storey residential buildings linked to a main building.
The centre building will house recreation, spiritual, housekeeping and other shared facilities.
The complex will be built on the former site of the Janeway Children's Hospital apartments and was picked from a list of seven possible locations.
The site is currently being remediated to remove hazardous materials and the province hopes to call the first construction tender for the project in the spring.
