The construction of the $850 million Grande Prairie Regional Hospital is now complete. Once operational, the 63,272-square metre hospital will have 240 patient beds and provide a wide range of health-care services, including surgery, cancer care and emergency services.
The hospital, which will be managed by Alberta Health Services (AHS), will include a state-of-the-art cancer centre that will include two new radiation treatment areas and a health-care training facility in partnership with Grande Prairie Regional College.
“When we hand over the hospital to Alberta Health Services on July 1, we will have completed construction of the newest and most technologically advanced hospital in Alberta,” said Minister of Infrastructure Prasad Panda. “Needed public infrastructure projects like this are an integral part of Alberta’s economic recovery and keeping Albertans working.”
