Read details on projects and timelines

An integrated, future-focused, hospital and cancer centre to help meet the needs of a rapidly growing region.

The new Surrey hospital and BC Cancer Centre will be an environmentally sustainable, patient-centred facility designed to better support physicians and staff, and provide enhanced quality care as well as an improved patient experience.

The new hospital will have 168 inpatient beds, a surgical/perioperative suite with five operating rooms, four procedure rooms, an emergency department with 55 treatment spaces and virtual care options in all clinical service areas. The site will also have a medical imaging department including three computed tomography (CT) scanners and two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines, pharmacy, laboratory and academic space.

The new integrated cancer centre will include an oncology/ambulatory care unit with 50 exam rooms, 54 chemotherapy treatment spaces and room for six linear accelerators for radiation therapy to provide care and support for people diagnosed with cancer.

Innovative technology throughout the hospital and cancer centre will facilitate a virtual-first approach to care that will enable many patients to spend less time in the hospital; creating enhanced safety, efficiency and capacity.

The new site will complement the care provided by Surrey Memorial Hospital, the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre and BC Cancer - Surrey, which together will offer quality patient care for a range of needs.

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.*
