In a move aimed at improving healthcare facilities in the region, the Province of Nova Scotia has announced a $75,000 investment for upgrades to the New Germany Medical Centre.

Lunenburg MLA Susan Corkum-Greek unveiled the funding at New Germany’s Community Cafe earlier today, emphasizing the government’s commitment to collaborating with proactive communities to address healthcare challenges and harness opportunities in the province’s growth.

The New Germany Medical Centre was established three decades ago through the collective efforts of the local community, with the aim of attracting and retaining healthcare professionals. This recent investment marks the first-ever financial support from the provincial government throughout the history of the medical center.

Speaking at the announcement, MLA Corkum-Greek stated, “Thirty years ago, the people of New Germany and the surrounding area took the initiative to construct this clinic, recognizing the need for accessible healthcare services. Our government firmly believes in working alongside engaged communities that actively seek solutions, whether it is addressing healthcare challenges or embracing opportunities as our province continues to develop.”

The $75,000 funding, which has been made available through the Department of Communities, Culture, Tourism and Heritage, will be allocated to upgrading and replacing the medical center’s aging infrastructure. The improvements will encompass the installation of a new water pump and tanks, upgrading lighting fixtures, and enhancing the parking area.

The New Germany Medical Centre serves as a vital healthcare hub for the local community, offering a range of medical services and treatments.
