The Interior Health Authority hopes to have shovels in the ground by the fall of 2018.
The Health Services Administrator for Royal Inland Hospital says the IHA is working with three different companies.
Tracey Rannie says, a choice to build the 400 million dollar patient services tower is coming soon.
“The patient care towers, we actually just finished our fourth collaborative in design, so we’re working with our three proponents, and the clinical staff, and we’re engaging with them, to make sure we get what we need. As we move forward, the next step will be to work through the scoring, and then also work with the proponents, and then pick one later in the summer.”
If construction starts this year, it will be complete by 2022.
