A clinic that specializes in healing bones and joints is partnering with a renowned health and fitness facility to create a one-stop health and wellness shop.

A new Pan-Am Clinic will be built adjacent to the Reh-Fit Centre on Taylor Avenue at Waverley Street at a cost of $85 million, the two organizations and Premier Greg Selinger announced Wednesday.

Reh-Fit, a not-for-profit medical fitness facility, will build the new clinic, while the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, which operates the once privately owned Pan-Am Clinic, will lease the space.

Reh-Fit will be responsible for the estimated $45-million building construction cost, while the province will shell out $40 million to outfit it — including new surgical and MRI suites.

Dr. Wayne Hildahl, Pan-Am’s CEO, said his existing clinic is 30 years old and space is cramped.
