Billion-dollar Edmonton

July 23, 2007

Clinic pushes on: Following the confirmation of an extra $332 million in provincial funds to cover rising costs of the $909 million project, construction on The Edmonton Clinic will begin as planned this September. Scheduled to open in 2011, and expected to rival the world-famous Mayo Clinic in the
United States,
the clinic will become a major training and research centre for the
University of
Alberta's health-sciences faculties.
