Opposition NDP MLA Doyle Vermette says the report states that 46 beds are needed in the northern community, but only 16 are available.
Vermette says the lack of extra beds means many seniors have to seek care in southern communities.
He says that can sometimes lead to 10-hour trips for loved ones to visit.
Health Minister Dustin Duncan says it will take time to address the situation in La Ronge because of a backlog of infrastructure needs.
Duncan says once projects like the Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan are completed, the government will be in a better position to look at long-term care facilities. (CJLR)
