The provincial government announced the approval of the Burnaby Hospital Redevelopment Project on Sept. 3, 2019.

Phase one of the redevelopment will see the construction of a six-storey, 83-bed pavilion with underground parking. All patient rooms, except for one, will be single-patient for privacy. The pavilion will include a maternity and labour unit, a neonatal intensive care unit and a medical inpatient unit with negative pressure rooms and outbreak zones to isolate infectious diseases.

With $578.2 million in funding from the province and $34 million from the Burnaby Hospital Foundation, phase one will cost approximately $612 million. Construction on phase two, which includes building the second patient-care tower with 160 beds and a new cancer treatment centre, is expected to begin in 2025, once the business plan is approved. The redevelopment will be among the province’s largest health care investments at a cost of $1.4 billion.
