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.  The project has reached the topping-off milestone, bringing the concrete phase to completion, as the tower reaches its full nine-storey height. With the structural steel phase underway, residents can look forward to the tower opening its doors to patients in the summer of 2022.
