The Royal Inland Hospital, located in Kamloops, B.C., is a 254-bed tertiary acute-care hospital. It is one of two Interior Health tertiary referral hospitals.
The Patient Care Tower project will take place in two phases. Phase 1 will be the design and construction of the Patient Care Tower, which will feature single-patient rooms and will bring Royal Inland Hospital up to current standards of care, improving working conditions, as well as infection control and prevention measures. Phase 2 will include significant renovation and expansion to the emergency department, pediatrics, post-anaesthetic recovery, and the morgue. New parking stalls will be added to the site.
Construction of the patient tower got underway in the fall of 2018. The patient care tower is scheduled to open in early 2022, with phase 2 renovations to be completed in the fall of 2024.
