There are three phases to the project, which are expected to take a total of 10 years to complete:
A new 22-storey Patient Support Centre (ground was broken on this project in October 2019);
The Peter Gilgan Family Patient Care Tower; and
Renovations to the existing campus.

In June 2020, work began on laying the foundation for the Patient Support Centre, which is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2022. The Patient Care Tower is scheduled for completion in 2029, followed by the completion of the renovations by 2031.
