Northern Health selected the team of PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc. and CEI Architecture as the preferred proponent for the Lakes District Hospital and Health Centre in Burns Lake.
The new hospital is scheduled to be complete by fall 2015, and will replace the existing hospital. It will house 16 beds, provide acute‐care and emergency services, diagnostic imaging, a laboratory and pharmacy. Facility space is planned for the medical clinic along with the delivery of mental‐health and addictions services, public health, and home and community care, and will include administrative and logistical services.
The building, an estimated total value of $55 million, will be built to LEED Gold standards and will align with the Wood First Act by optimizing the use of wood.
