The new St. Paul’s Hospital Project in Vancouver, B.C., which will span more than two million square feet, is set to become the most extensive hospital redevelopment in the province’s history. The hospital, designed by HDR in collaboration with Stantec, will be a patient-centered campus of care focused on sustainability and resiliency and keeping patients health and cared for within their own community.
“The design supports an enhanced patient experience while creating a timeless space that embraces the history of this long-respected institution,” said Darren Burns, Vice President, Stantec, in a release.
The facility will include an emergency department, surgical and interventional services, a critical care unit, a maternal newborn unit and birthing suites, outpatient services, inpatient and outpatient mental health services, community care and outreach programs, and a multilevel 1,170-space parking structure. Public parks and plaza and community infrastructure will integrate the new facility with the local community.
The project is currently in the detailed design phase. Site preparation and construction are expected to begin in spring 2021. Completion is slated for 2026.
