    • 78 beds, allowing for more patients to be admitted
    • Upgraded mental health and substance use inpatient unit
    • Maternity ward to offer enhanced care for new parents, newborns and families

    *Dates are projected and may be subject to change.

    The second phase of the Burnaby Hospital redevelopment centres on the second patient-care tower which will include:

    • 160 new single treatment spaces, allowing for more privacy
    • State-of-the-art cancer treatment centre providing specialized care

    *Dates are projected and may be subject to change.
