Earlier today, Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC), in partnership with St. Joseph's Care Group (SJCG) and the Northwest Health Alliance (NWHA), unveiled their new, state-of-the-art regional data centre today. The design, engineering, construction and equipment of the new shared facility was made possible thanks to a Government of Canada investment of $1 million.

The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour and Member of Parliament for Thunder Bay - Superior North, and Don Rusnak, Member of Parliament for Thunder Bay - Rainy River, attended today’s event and made the announcement on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, and Minister responsible for FedNor.

The FedNor investment was critical to creating the new data centre, which will now assist the TBRHSC and its partners to further implement regional electronic health records and applications, research systems and business applications, Regional Picture Archiving Communications Systems (PACS), as well as business intelligence and administrative systems. Furthermore, the new equipment and expanded capacity is expected to help foster collaborative research opportunities in data mining and analytics, strengthen data management and usage, and facilitate disaster recovery.

“This regional data centre is an example of partnership that benefits all hospitals in Northwestern Ontario in a way that will expand capabilities for electronic medical records, support research, and provide a foundation for technology that will help us to innovate and advance care. It is a $4-million-dollar project that would not have been possible without the $1 million investment of the Government of Canada and FedNor.”
