Taloyoak Health Centre Opens

We are thrilled to share that the Taloyoak Health Centre officially opened on September 3rd, 2015. The $30m facility is a key component in the delivery of primary care, urgent care medical services (including Emergency, Radiology, Maternity, Adult and Child Treatment), mental health services, dental, continuing care and other community health services to the people of Taloyoak, Nunavut. Five loft-style residences for visiting and resident medical staff are included above the medical areas providing convenient comfortable accommodation for staff and their families.

This project represents the second in a series of three health centres in Nunavut designed in conjunction with Stantec (formerly FSC Architects and Engineers). Nycum provided full architectural services, interior design and healthcare specialty design expertise related to the building interiors, as well as furniture and medical equipment consulting. The third project, in Arctic Bay, is presently under construction and slated to open in 2017.
