The construction of the new Teck Acute Care Centre at BC Children’s Hospital is officially underway! On May 9, chair of the Campaign for BC Children and president & CEO of Teck Resources Limited Don Lindsay, Health Minister Terry Lake, major donors to the campaign, hospital staff and many other esteemed guests came together to break ground for the new building and celebrate this momentous milestone. In 2017, children and families from across BC will have access to this new, state-of-the-art health centre, which offers facilities that match the high quality of care they already receive today.

Throughout the planning of the Teck Acute Care Centre, project staff were guided by input from patient families, and medical, clinical and administrative leaders. The centre will be an eight-storey high facility and approximately 640,000 square feet. It will include medical/surgical inpatient units, an emergency department, medical imaging and procedural suites, a pediatric intensive care unit and a hematology/oncology department that encompasses an entire floor. The building will also house BC Women’s Hospital’s high-risk birthing suites and neonatal intensive care unit.

One of the project’s main goals is to give patients and families a more welcoming and family-friendly environment in which to be treated and heal. Children in the new hospital will have access to private patient rooms with windows, as well as green spaces, playrooms and many other features.
