LEDUC COMMUNITY HOSPITAL CSR
Construction Cost: $830,000

The Leduc upgrade was completed in 4 phases.
Phase 1 involved reconfiguring the Endoscopy suite to accommodate 2 STERIS 1 one units in a clean room and upgrade the dirty side with a full sized 3 compartment sink.
Phase 2 was adding 2 new sterilizers and expanding the work space to suit the users needs.
Phase 3 incorporated adding a second washer disinfector, loading rack, hand washing sink, eye wash station and a 3 compartment sink.
