I'd rather see McDermot get built up and fixed up, maybe with a couple cafes or services too, before focus shifts to Notre Dame. It's not like walking down Notre Dame is ever going to be pleasant.

Don't get me wrong, it's not like I was expecting Notre Dame to get built up in the next 5 years. But seeing that the Manitoba Clinic is the first new HSC-affiliated building to go up along Notre Dame since probably the power plant in the 70s, it's basically setting the stage for what is to come.

I noticed they are putting a large Manitoba Clinic sign at the top of the building which will make it easy to identify, although it didn't look like the sign will be lit. The new building isn't what I'd consider a stunner, but I have to admit that it has impressive presence when you're on Notre Dame.
Are all the offices moving into the new building? Are they demoing the old one? My kids go to Dr Hanna at the Mb Clinic, I wonder if her office is moving next door. Assuming it is.

^ Not sure about whether all the pediatricians (not to mention other departments) are moving on the same day or what, if your kids have appointments in the month of November it would be prudent to call ahead.

It was supposed to get demolished and become an extension to CCMB.

But Pallister put an end to that.

If I had to put money on it, in the short term the old MB Clinic will likely get demoed once the move is completed and at least in the short term be turned into a surface parking lot. Basically it will go into the HSC campus land bank until there is a suitable project and funding to do something more with it.

It's owned by Cancer Care, though, not HSC. Cancer Care is pretty overcrowded in their current building, so I wouldn't be surprised if they use the building for clinic space until their long term plan comes to fruition.

Speaking of Pallister and pardon my ignorance. Do we have any indication that Pallisters cuts are working? Or is it still early days for him? At first blush it would seem canceling tons of projects and slashing thousands of jobs would save the people money. But it's not so simple.

My only experience is knowing an ER nurse. She was offered a new gig. They do these weird "point" hours. Like, .7 meaning you work .7 of full time. So she was approached to take a position that is actually a lower "point" but moves her from nights to days and due to seniority will end up working more hours.

Havent heard any stories locally yet. I live in the south end. I have elderly parents. So ive been to Victoria Hsp and HSC numerous times. If they can keep non-emergency and non-urgent out, it will help exponentially.

^Assuming you're asking about results of the cuts in general BJ, no – there's no evidence anything is working. Way more evidence that huge cuts in the past had negative long term effects. There's no rhyme, reason, or strategy to most of the cuts.

Under the previous MB PC government there was a report done on nursing. Before the report it was tough of a new nursing grad to get a job locally and there wasn't a lot of talk of there being a nursing shortage. Not sure exactly what but the report basically changed things up and suddenly there was a nursing shortage in the province and the Manitoba Nurses Union (MNU) developed Hoffa-like grip over the healthcare system.

It is still far too early to tell what the impact of all the changes underway will be but it will be interesting to see what impact closing Winnipeg's second busiest ER will have.

Yeah. Unfortunately a lot of the cuts just seem to be straight budget or funding cuts, without focusing on the real problem of all the bloat added to provincial gov and crown corps under the NDP, for example the well-known waste that goes on at Hydro, and the unions that have a death grip on any real change.
