"Our investment in this new technology at Centre Transmed Center is part of our government's plan to grow the economy and keep our young people here at home," said Graham. "This investment will create good jobs and new opportunities for young people to find success in the Restigouche region, while assisting our province on the road to self-sufficiency."

Joining Graham for the announcement was Nathalie Levesque, executive director and co-owner of Centre Transmed Center Inc.

"It is thanks to these investments and our employees that Transmed Center was able to solidify its medical transcription core and undertake its diversification plans, i.e. adding a translation department," said Levesque.

Funding provided through the Regional Development Corporation will be used to help defray the costs of acquiring new software and equipment.

Centre Transmed Center Inc., in operation since November 1996, provides specialized transcription to medical professionals in the health care industry and translation services. The only bilingual provider of such services in North America, the company transcribes medical documents such as operative reports, discharge summaries and consultations for hospitals, clinics and physicians across Canada and also offers translation services.
