Teck Acute Care Centre celebrates another milestone

The Teck Acute Care Centre at BC Children’s and BC Women’s Hospital has celebrated another milestone – the hospital held its topping off ceremony earlier this month! With the building now complete from foundation to roof, the Honourable Terry Lake, Minister of Health, and David Podmore, chair of the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, visited the site to count down to a special banner reveal.

Our count down continues as we work towards completion in late Fall 2017!

The new Acute Care Centre will include an emergency department, inpatient units, paediatric intensive care, medical imaging, haematology/oncology and procedural suites. In addition, the facility will include a high-risk labour and delivery suite, and a neo-natal intensive care unit. The design has been through an intensive collaborative process, involving mock ups and consultation with hospital staff, as seen in this video.
