The Story

The Burnaby Hospital Redevelopment Project will have two phases, Phase 1A and Phase 1B. The construction of a new inpatient/outpatient tower, named the Keith and Beedie Pavilion will take place during Phase 1A. The tower will be six-storeys and have 83 single-patient rooms with private bathrooms. Renovations to the Support Facilities Building, which includes demolition work related to the expansion of the hospital will take place in Phase 1B.

The tower will also have:

• A mental health and substance use unit, with a secured outdoor patio;
• A maternity and labour unit;
• A neonatal intensive care unit;
• A medical unit with negative pressure rooms and outbreak zones; and
• Underground parking.

The expansion and renovations of the Support Facilities Building will include:

• An emergency room;
• An increase to the number of operating rooms and procedure rooms;
• Additional pre-operative and post-operative recovery spaces;
• A new medical device reprocessing unit with improved infection control; and
• A new energy centre to replace the aging power plant and create electrical capacity to support the hospital’s growth.

The Burnaby Hospital Redevelopment Project is targeting LEED Gold Certification for the new tower.
