Renovations to begin on outdated local nursing homes
Record staff - February 03, 2010
WATERLOO REGION — Renovations will finally start on two local nursing homes after the province pledged a few years ago to fix up aging facilities across Ontario.
Health and Long-Term Care Minister Deb Matthews was in Cambridge Wednesday morning at Hilltop Manor to announce the first wave of work is beginning on the 10-year plan to update 35,000 beds.
Hilltop Manor and Pinehaven Nursing Home in Waterloo are the two local facilities included in the first stage to redevelop more than 4,100 beds in 37 homes all over the province.
Hilltop Manor will have 89 beds updated and Pinehaven 127. The two homes are the only ones in the Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network included in the recent announcement, with work expected to be finished as early as 2012.

This project passed unanimously tonight at city council.
Really? 30 MILLION dollars? For this? Is it me or does that seem super duper high?
That struck me as unusually high as well. For that price tag I'd expect more than a concrete slab.
