The newest addition to "the community built by the community" is Murray House. The ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours for the public were held on May 27.

In September 2011, the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation launched its "A Sense of Home" fundraising campaign to raise the capital costs of construction for a residence that would act as a "home away from home" for patients and their families travelling to Brandon for cancer treatment.

In December, 2011, the residence — located at 521 Frederick Street — was officially named "Murray House" after a major donation was received from the Murray family and their automotive dealerships.

Completely driven by public donations and completed in an unprecedented 14 months, the foundation’s campaign was a community project in its truest form.

Thanks to proceeds from this initiative, combined with those from the earlier Westman Cares campaign, the Brandon Regional Health Centre Foundation raised more than $2.85 million for Prairie Mountain Health to build Murray House.

For more information about Murray House, please contact Noreen McLachlan at 204-717-8700.
