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 new Keith and Betty Beedie Pavilion, the new Jim Pattison Surgery Centre in Burnaby and renovations to existing buildings on the health care campus.

The new six-storey Keith and Betty Beedie 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 new Jim Pattison Surgery Centre in Burnaby and renovations of the Support Facilities Building will include:

  • 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 (2025-2028)**

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

  • new patient care tower with 160 new beds
  • new BC Cancer Centre
  • new medical imaging department
  • emergency department renovations and expansion
  • additional parking
