Residential Care + Hospice
In keeping with our community's long-standing commitment to seek the best solution for our evolving health care needs, the Foundation - in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Fraser Health Authority - has launched a comprehensive site Redevelopment and Expansion, which includes a new Emergency Department and residential care facility with a new hospice residence.
The new residential care facility will house 200 beds - 112 dedicated to complex residential care, 73 to geriatric mental health and substance abuse patients and a 15-bed hospice residence. This new facility will replace residential care beds currently located in the Weatherby Pavilion and the hospital's existing hospice, making current acute care capacity more readily available for new patients.
This site Redevelopment and Expansion was formally announced on May 1, 2015 and will be completed by 2018. Stay tuned for more details such as building plans and a detailed timeline as they become available.
