The new Surrey hospital and BC Cancer Centre represents the next generation of acute health care in the Fraser Health Region

Rendering of New Surrey Hospital and BC Cancer Centre

We are building a new hospital and BC Cancer Centre in Surrey to provide care, closer to home, for hundreds of thousands of people living and working in British Columbia’s fastest-growing community and region.

To advance patient and family centred care, the new community hospital will include inpatient beds, an emergency department, operating rooms, laboratory and diagnostic services, outpatient services and the new cancer centre.

The new Surrey hospital and BC Cancer Centre will be a fully digitally-equipped, fully electric facility that will be at the forefront of health care innovation, technology and sustainability. The new hospital and cancer centre will integrate digital and virtual health innovation to increase clinical capacity, expand access to care for patients and their families and improve patient outcomes, enabling us to support thousands of additional patients every year.

With a special focus on general medicine and short-stay surgeries – the areas of greatest projected service demand – the new Surrey hospital and BC Cancer Centre will address the most pressing health care needs of our community, now and in the future.

The new hospital and cancer centre will feature all new technology and equipment, including innovative digital technologies and services that will be incorporated into patients’ journeys, from pre-admission to discharge, to better support patients inside – and outside – a modern smart hospital, connected to a regional smart system of care.

Construction of the hospital and cancer centre, which will be located centrally in the Cloverdale neighbourhood, is expected to begin in 2023 with completion projected in 2027.*
