The Carleton Place Regional Health Hub is going from a dream to reality when shovels hit the ground this fall.

14 existing family physicians across Beckwith and Carleton Place will operate under one roof providing residents access to programs offered by the Ottawa Valley Family Health Team (OVFHT).

OVFHT Executive Director Peter Hamer says the initial reaction from the local physicians were a mixed bag.

The 40,000 square feet of space on a 15,000 square feet footprint will be on Costello Drive, a prime location for this facility, Hamer says

He adds it took five years of work to get to this point, and they hope to have doors open by next September.

This was made possible through $1.2 million in annual provincial funding and $1.7 million over ten years between Carleton Place and Beckwith.
