MAXVILLE – Maxville Manor will be getting an expansion and upgrades as part of a nearly $1 billion spend by the Ontario government on long-term care homes.

The province announced Thursday (March 18) that Maxville would get 38 new long-term care spaces in addition to upgrades to its existing 122 beds.

“The project will result in a 160-bed home through the construction of a new building in Maxville as part of a campus of care,” local MPP Jim McDonnell shared in a news release.

The building will be an addition at the existing site.

Maxville Manor CEO Amy Porteous says the government approval is “extraordinary news.”

No timeline for the construction was shared.

Maxville Manor opened in 1968 on the 12 acre site in the west end of the village on County Road 22 (Mechanic Street West).
