The Department of Social Development announced today that Shannex would build two new licensed long term care communities in the province.
The Fredericton home will be built on Cliffe Street, next to Shannex’s Neill Hall. The new home in Moncton will be part of the campus currently being built behind the Northwest Plaza between Worthington Avenue and Mountain Road. The Moncton home is expected to open by November 2023; the Fredericton home is expected to open by April 2024.
“During these extraordinary times, we are pleased to be able to help address the need for more nursing homes which will take some pressure off the healthcare system,” said Shannex president and COO Jason Shannon. “We are committed to providing New Brunswick seniors and their families with the services and care they need and deserve. We are confident these new homes will be places where they will continue to live well with support from our dedicated team members. We know we hold the trust of New Brunswickers in our work and we take that seriously.”
Shannex is dedicated to this province and its people and recognizes that it is an honour to be entrusted with the responsibility of opening these new homes in Moncton and Fredericton where there is a critical need for long term care (240 beds) that will also help relieve pressure from the acute care system. More importantly though, these communities will become vibrant hubs for New Brunswickers to call home.
Shannex has more than 1,600 New Brunswick team members who care for residents in 10 nursing homes and six retirement living communities. They are the heart of the organization, and it is our priority to support them and their families as they navigate this extraordinary time. This includes actively working to recruit and retain more healthcare workers through strategic recruitment efforts, local academic partnerships, our own international recruitment team, and settlement support for newcomers.
Through the operation of its licensed homes, Shannex is accountable to the provincial government and the people of this province, just like every other licensed nursing home operator.
