Interior Health has awarded a contract for the development of 30 residential care beds in Cranbrook.
The beds will be going to Golden Life Management after a thorough procurement process.
They will provide 24-hour support for seniors and individuals with complex care needs in the community.
IH issued a series of Request for Proposals (RFPs) in September 2016 for the design, construction and operation of 243 new residential care beds in communities across the service region.
The RFPs called for building environments that are homelike and not institutional-feeling but are safe for residents and staff.
The new beds are expected to open in summer 2018.
