Island Health has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking clinic and office space in the Cowichan Valley to support future growth and improve access to community health services.
Families and individuals require a range of health supports within their community to help them stay healthy at home. As part of its commitment to strengthening community-based supports, Island Health is seeking space in the Cowichan Valley that will improve patient access to services and provide the infrastructure needed to support future growth.
For many years the home and community care office on Ingram Street in Duncan has been a hub for community health services. Demand for a wide range of health supports, such as wound care, nutrition support, expanded IV clinic and occupational therapy, continues to grow along with the community. New space is needed so health-care staff can continue to provide quality care in an accessible setting that supports patient safety and privacy.
Proponents should be able to provide 10,000 to 20,000 square feet of safe, functional lease space in one or more locations within the Cowichan Valley.
Details of the RFP, including specific space requirements and guidelines, can be viewed online at bcbid.ca. All proposals must be received by 2 p.m. on August 27, 2020.
