Old health care facilities up for sale
The P.E.I. government is looking to unload two seniors homes and an old medical clinic that it no longer has any use for.
The Colville Manor in Souris, the Maplewood Manor in Alberton, and the Beechwood Medical Clinic in O'Leary have all been replaced with new facilities. Alan Maynard, Director of public works and planning for the province, said the price tag on the buildings will be dependent on the proposal.
"[It's] depending on what it is they decide," said Maynard.
"What we're looking for is a use in the community that would benefit the community at the end of the day. That's part of the criteria of the requirements."
Maynard won't speculate what the buildings could be used for, but community groups would have to raise the money for the purchase and for the renovations to convert the building to its new use.
If there's not enough interest from non-profit groups, the facilities will be made available to the public at large.
