Construction began on a new Mills Memorial Hospital in Terrace, BC, in June 2021, after Northern Health signed an agreement with PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc. (PCL) to design and build the project. The new, state-of-the-art facility is being designed to address the current and future needs of patients in Northwest BC. The acute care hospital and integrated services facility will be a centre for trauma services, orthopedic surgeries, pathology, radiology, clinical support and pharmacy services. The hospital will also be a training site for medical students in the Northern Medical Program. The new facility is being built on the north end of the same property as the current facility. The new hospital is expected to start operating in the fall of 2024, followed by the demolition of the existing facility, parking and landscaping. The Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement project also includes the construction of a new Seven Sisters Mental Health residential facility, which will have an increase of 20 to 25 beds. The new Seven Sisters facility will also be built on the same property, on the south end.
