The strategy was announced today, and it will include the 4200 square foot facility in Prince George, as well as an addition to the Prince George Regional Hospital, to accomodate a new six-bed oncology unit.

The strategy, as a whole, will cost the province an estimated 99.5 million dollars, including the new centre in Prince George, the renovations to the existing hospital, and the equipment and infrastructure upgrades throughout the north.
