2013: A Year in Preview – Mount View campus of care

Work will continue through 2013 at Mount View Heights

Work will continue through 2013 at Mount View Heights, which, when complete, will be a comprehensive eight-acre site that will provide care and housing for seniors, the homeless and low-income families.

Currently under construction is The Heights at Mount View, a seven-storey, 260-bed residential care facility. It’s a joint effort between Baptist Housing, the Capital Regional Hospital District and the Vancouver Island Health Authority.

When complete in 2014, the $60.5-million Heights at Mount View will include two unique 20-patient houses specially designed for patients with early stages of dementia.

Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard says he expects the Carey Road site, the former home of Mount View school, will be named in 2013 as a potential location to build a replacement for Oak Bay Lodge.

“I think Saanich will want to have a voice in the replacement of the Lodge because we want to see those beds stay on the eastern part of the region,” he said.
