Nearly $5.2 million is going to expand dialysis spaces in Winnipeg, Thompson, Hodgson, Pine Falls, Winkler and Portage la Prairie.
Funding is also to be used to expand home dialysis treatments. Premier Brian Pallister says the money provides life-saving care to Manitobans in need, when and where they need it the most.
