Central Okanagan taxpayers will contribute $625,000 toward a new urgent and primary care centre in Kelowna.

For health-care capital projects, the provincial government pays 60% of the cost and local taxpayers provide 40%.
The local share of the urgent and primary care centre was to have been $790,000, but some money was left over from recently completed projects.
