The Teck Acute Care Centre at BC Children’s Hospital launches a new era of child health
After ten years in the making, the Teck Acute Care Centre opened its doors on October 29, 2017. More than 80,000 people from across the province generously came together to support the new hospital and help make this new era of child health possible.
The eight-storey facility is home to an expanded emergency department, state-of-the-art operating rooms, advanced diagnostic imaging facilities, a pediatric intensive care unit, an entire floor dedicated to oncology, as well as medical and surgical inpatient units with all private patient rooms.
In addition to healing gardens, playrooms and lounges, over 400 pieces of purposeful art have been designed to provide positive distraction, inspire, educate and ultimately, promote healing.
The Teck Acute Care Centre is built to heal—in body, mind and spirit.
