The redevelopment of the QEII Health Science Centre is a multi-phase project involving several health care sites throughout Halifax and the surrounding area. The project will transform health care delivery in Nova Scotia, providing modern services for patients throughout the province. The primarily project elements include: the renovation of Hants Community Hospital in Windsor; renovation of Dartmouth General Hospital; a new Community Outpatient Centre in Bayers Lake; expansion of the Halifax Infirmary site; a new hospice residence in Halifax; and movement of the QEII Cancer Centre to the new Infirmary site. Completion of these projects will result in the closure of Centennial, Dickson, and Victoria buildings on the QEII Victoria site in Halifax.
