This new 64,000-square-metre hospital is expected to provide 200 beds, a cancer care centre, and a nursing and medical careers training facility from the Grande Prairie Regional College. It will function as a regional referral centre, providing health services to northwestern Alberta residents. The existing Queen Elizabeth II Hospital will continue as a health care facility to be used to provide ambulatory, community and other health services. Alberta Health Services will operate on the two sites.

Following the fallout with the initial construction manager in mid-2018, the government hired Clark Builders in November of 2018 to take over the project. Despite efforts to get the project back to its original construction schedule, with substantial completion in 2019, Minister of Infrastructure Prasad Panda noted in the fall of 2019 that the project would not be completed until 2020.
