The region is still buzzing after Tuesday's announcement of government funding for long term care beds. 

Here in the Heartland Health Region there will be new facilities in Kerrobert, Rosetown and Biggar.  MLA for Rosetown-Elrose Jim Reiter says he is thrilled and that the new facility is a long time coming.

Biggar MLA Randy Weekes echoed Reiter's statements.  Weekes also said it was an exciting caucus meeting when these projects were announced but they had to be kept a secret until the last minute.
