One of Canada’s leading architectural firms has been awarded the contract to design a new health-care facility in Pugwash, Cumberland Co. The province announced the awarding of the contract to Architecture49 today, Dec. 1. The new health-care facility will replace the aging North Cumberland Memorial Hospital. It will offer primary health services, collaborative emergency care, laboratory and diagnostic imaging, inpatient care, and rehabilitation services for residents of Pugwash and the surrounding area. “We are pleased to see the advancement of the redevelopment project,” said Allan Horsburgh, vice-president, Stewardship and Accountability, Nova Scotia Health Authority. “This brings us another step closer to designing a new health-care facility that will meet the current and future needs of the community. “This is an exciting milestone for the redevelopment project and the residents of north Cumberland.” The preliminary designs will be completed this spring. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2019.
