Burnaby Hospital Technical Submission Exterior Aerial

Read details on projects and timelines.

The Burnaby Hospital redevelopment is a multi-phase project that will transform the hospital into a modernized medical and surgical health care campus.

Phase one (2021-2026)*

The first phase will include the construction of a new pavilion and the expansion of the existing Support Facilities Building.

The six-storey pavilion will have 83 beds, in primarily single-patient rooms with private bathrooms. It will include:

  • mental health and substance use unit with a secured outdoor patio to enhance healing
  • maternity unit that will provide single-room maternity care, where individuals will go through labour and delivery, and will recover for the rest of their stay in the same comfortable room
  • neonatal intensive care unit with single rooms for more privacy and comfort for families as well as support best practices for infection control
  • medical unit with negative pressure rooms and outbreak zones to enhance infection control
  • underground parking for improved accessibility.

The expansion and renovations of the Support Facilities Building, which includes the Jim Pattison Surgery Centre and the Burnaby Community Emergency Department, will feature:

  • larger emergency department, reducing wait times and providing greater patient privacy
  • additional operating rooms and procedure rooms, increasing the number of surgeries performed
  • additional pre-operative and post-operative recovery spaces, enhancing patient privacy and creating efficiencies
  • new medical device reprocessing unit with improved infection control
  • new energy centre, replacing the aging power plant and creating more electrical capacity to support the hospital’s growth

Phase two (2025-2030)*

The second phase will increase the hospital’s bed capacity and expand cancer services. It will include:

  • the new Keith and Betty Beedie Acute Care Tower with 160 beds to include general medicine, medical oncology, cardiac telemetry and critical care units
  • new BC Cancer Centre
  • new medical imaging department
  • emergency department expansion
  • endoscopy renovations
