The preferred proponent team for Phase 2 of the Burnaby Hospital redevelopment project has been selected by Fraser Health and the Provincial Health Services Authority.

The multi-party contract, known as a single target outturn cost alliance development agreement, was awarded to the team of PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc. and Parkin Architects Western Ltd.

“The vision to redevelop the Burnaby Hospital has always been to allow more people to have access to modernized acute-care services, such as life-saving cancer care, within their community,” said Minister of Health Adrian Dix. “With Phase 1 of the Burnaby Hospital redevelopment project well underway, Fraser Health is taking more major strides. I’m excited that we’ve reached this milestone because it means we are closer to beginning design and construction for Phase 2.”

Phase 2 of the Burnaby Hospital redevelopment includes the construction of the Keith and Betty Beedie Acute Care Tower, which will feature 160 private rooms to support general medicine, medical oncology, cardiac telemetry, intensive care and high-acuity patients, a new medical imaging department with two CT scanners, a spiritual-care suite, public spaces and hospital support services.

The new tower will also be home to the new BC Cancer – Burnaby McCarthy Centre, which will include 54 ambulatory-care rooms, 31 chemotherapy chairs, space for five linear accelerators, space for two PET/CT scanners, an oncology pharmacy, and clinical trials and research space.

Phase 2 also includes the demolition of the West Wing building, expansion of the emergency department to 104 treatment spaces, and renovations to the endoscopy and laboratory components. Construction is expected to start in late 2025 and be ready for patients in 2030. The total cost of Phase 2 is approximately $1.7 billion with funding from the province, Burnaby Hospital Foundation and BC Cancer Foundation.

In April, a Phase 1 construction milestone was reached with the removal of two cranes from the site. Phase 1 of the Burnaby Hospital redevelopment, undertaken by design-builder EllisDon, includes the construction of the new health-care pavilion, which features maternity, neonatal intensive care, mental-health in-patient and medical in-patient units. The estimated completion date for the new pavilion is 2025.

Additional work underway in Phase 1 includes a comprehensive upgrade of the Jim Pattison Surgery Centre, now with a total of 10 new or upgraded operating rooms, as well as renovations to the emergency department and other support areas as part of the expansion and renovation of the Support Facilities Building.
