At more than 185,806 m2 (2 million sf), this new health care facility will be the most extensive hospital redevelopment in the province’s history.
“For over 125 years St Paul’s Hospital has served the greater Vancouver community with dedication and tremendous compassion,” said Troy Ransdell, health care principal at HDR. “We have long admired their work and commitment, and we are humbled and honoured to help these remarkable people realize their dreams and aspirations as they continue their good work into the future.”
The design of the new St. Paul’s Hospital will be a patient-centered campus of care focused on sustainability and resiliency, as well as keeping patients healthy and cared for within their own community. The hospital will include a new emergency department, surgical and interventional services, a critical care unit, a maternal newborn unit and birthing suits, outpatient services, inpatient and outpatient mental health services, community care and outreach programs, and a multilevel, 1170-space parking structure. Public spaces such as parks and plazas as well as community infrastructure will integrate this new facility with the community it serves.
The design-build team also includes PCL Construction. The project is currently in the detailed design phase, with site preparation and construction expected to begin in spring 2021 with completion in 2026.
