“It is exciting to see the progress on the new Urgent Care Centre unfold,” Health Minister Paul Merriman said in a release. “The new facility is an important addition to healthcare services for Regina and area residents and we look forward to its opening early next year.”

Over the winter, construction crews completed more than half of the roofing, fully installed the exterior sheeting and completed three-quarters of the interior framing, the province said.
