Misericordia’s Redevelopment

Misericordia Health Centre, building on its vision of ambulatory excellence and compassionate care designed for an aging population, is replacing the aging Maryland South and Sherbrook buildings in two distinct phases.


The Maryland South building was demolished to make way for a new two-storey health complex showcasing expanded and new programs:

Buhler Eye Care Centre: this provincial centre, the largest in Western Canada and home to the MHC Eye Bank, was consolidated and expanded to include a new University of Manitoba Ophthalmology Residency Program. Ophthalmologists perform 25,000 eye assessments and treatments annually, and more than 12,000 eye surgeries including cataract, retinal and corneal transplants.

Ambulatory Diagnostic Centre: the diagnostic imaging department and Diagnostic Services Manitoba laboratory were relocated to be in closer proximity to both Urgent Care and Ambulatory Care, increasing the speed MHC can assess and treat patients so as to decrease lengths of stay.

PRIME: opening in spring 2015, this new health centre for seniors will complement MHC’s existing Long-Term Care programs while meeting the referral demands of the initial PRIME site at Deer Lodge Centre. PRIME - providing medical expertise, recreational and social activities, personal care, rehabilitation and support for families - is designed for seniors wanting to remain in their own homes for as long as possible

The 1906 Sherbrook building will be demolished and recreated to link the Cornish and Wolseley buildings. The new building will include a Chapel and other aesthetically-pleasing features, such as a dedicated front entrance with a two-storey glass-walled atrium.

Parallel to Phase 2, the Winnipeg Health Region is exploring the feasibility of building a Renal Dialysis Centre with an adjoining inpatient Chronic Care Unit for geriatric dialysis patients.
