Northern Health begins process towards new Mental Health Facility for Terrace region
The push towards providing for better mental health services in the Northwest gets underway this month, as Northern Health takes the first steps towards development in Terrace of what will be known as the Seven Sisters Residence Replacement project.
The first stage of the replacement plan is a posting to the Bid BC website seeking out the services of qualified Contractors who may have an interest in the estimated 18 million dollar capital project.
The Seven Sisters Residence (“Seven Sisters”) will accommodate Northern Health’s mental health rehabilitation and recovery program and is one facility in an integrated system to provide mental health care services in northern B.C.
The Project has been proposed in response to a need for additional tertiary (non-acute) mental health beds in Terrace.
In the notes included in the BC Bid prospectus, it is noted that the project is expected to be put out for tender within the next six months but is still subject to final government approval.
You can review the call for qualifications from the BC Bid site here, it is listed under Northern Health Authority.
The initial call for expressions of interest is designed to request applications from general contractors with proven experience and successful history in managing construction of health care related construction projects.
The deadline for those with an interest in submitting their qualifications is February 28th, Northern Health will follow that up by using the list as they put the project out to tender.
