The Langley Memorial Hospital is undergoing several capital development projects to upgrade and expand facilities and services to improve care for our community. 

Emergency Department Expansion

Langley Memorial Hospital’s emergency department (ED) will expand to three times its current size and is designed to better support and care for patients and families who require emergency care.  

  • 49 new private treatment spaces from 31 
  • Waiting and treatment area specifically designed for children and families 
  • Specialized mental health and substance use waiting and treatment area
  • Redesigned emergency entrance and waiting area

Quick facts:

  • The emergency department upgrades include new underground services and rerouting existing services, a new entrance road and new patient pick-up/drop-off area.
