The Government of British Columbia, Canada has announced the start of construction work on a new mental-health facility in Terrace.

The new facility will replace the existing Seven Sisters mental-health facility, which offers long-term recovery and rehabilitation programmes for adult patients with serious and persistent mental illness.

Work on the project involves demolition of the existing facility and construction of the new hospital.

The new hospital is being constructed on the southwest corner of the site to the left of the main entrance of the current hospital.

It will have 25 beds, up from the 20 beds at the existing facility, along with additional meeting spaces, rooms, and recreational facilities.

Slated to be completed in late fall next year, the new Seven Sisters facility is expected to be nearly twice the size of the existing facility, allowing more people to receive care.

British Columbia Health Minister Adrian Dix said: “The new Seven Sisters will ensure that when people in northwestern B.C. need mental-health support, they get timely, high-quality care close to home, which is crucial to their recovery.

“We are committed to continuing to build a strong health-care service network in the region, which will help build resilient communities.”

The new Seven Sisters mental-health facility is a  part of the Mills Memorial Hospital replacement project.

The new Mills hospital will have 20 of the total 78 beds dedicated to adult in-patient psychiatric care to improve mental-health services.

Construction work on the hospital commenced in June last year, with completion anticipated by fall 2024.

Construction company PCL Constructors Westcoast is responsible for the design and construction of both the new hospitals.
