Fraser Health Invests US$683 million to Expand and Renovate Burnaby Hospital in Canada
Burnaby Hospital redevelopment project invests US$683 million to expand additional health care services in Canada.
The new facility, which will consist of a 12-storey inpatient tower, is set to become the home of the new BC Cancer Centre. This comprehensive cancer centre will boast an array of specialised amenities, including 54 ambulatory care rooms, 31 dedicated chemotherapy chairs, and space designated for five linear accelerators and two PET/CT scanners.
The facility will also feature an oncology pharmacy and provide dedicated areas for clinical trials and research activities.
In addition to its cancer care facilities, the proposed tower will incorporate a range of healthcare services. The in-patient tower includes 160 private inpatient rooms, providing a more comfortable and private environment for patients.
Within the tower, various medical units will operate, including general medicine, medical oncology, cardiac telemetry, as well as intensive care and high-acuity units, ensuring comprehensive healthcare coverage.
Moreover, the facility will house a state-of-the-art medical imaging department, equipped with two CT scanners to support diagnostic needs effectively.
Phase one of the project is currently underway, with plans for the new facility to open its doors to patients in 2025.
The project comprises two phases, with phase two estimated at a cost of approximately US$1.7 billion. This phase aims to enhance and expand the existing healthcare infrastructure.
This phase involves the demolition of the West Wing building, extensive renovations to the existing facilities. These renovations will involve a substantial expansion of the emergency department, resulting in an impressive total of 104 treatment spaces.
Furthermore, within the existing nursing tower, the endoscopy suite will undergo renovations.
