Canadian design firm Stantec has received the contract to provide design services for three healthcare projects involving inpatient and emergency care in Canada.
The three projects include Prince Albert Victoria Hospital in northern Saskatchewan, Cariboo Memorial Hospital in British Columbia, and Weeneebayko Area Health Authority in northern Ontario.
The design company together with construction contractor Graham Construction will offer design and construction services for the $180m (C$217.75m) Cariboo Memorial Hospital Redevelopment Project in Williams Lake, British Columbia.
This expansion project will include an emergency department, medical or surgical inpatient units, maternal care and women’s health and pharmacy services.
Construction work on the redevelopment project is expected to be completed in 2025.
For Prince Albert Victoria Hospital, Stantec will provide technical advisory work and design the expansion and renewal of the facility located in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
The scope of work on the $248m (C$300m) expansion project will include an upgrade of the existing facility, replacing the current mental health space and construction of a new acute care tower.
The total number of beds at the facility is expected to increase by about 40% along with additional space for future expansion if required.
Stantec will provide architecture, interiors, structural, mechanical, electrical, information management, civil, landscape, acoustics, heliport, geomatics, and sustainability consulting services for both Cariboo Memorial Hospital and Prince Albert Victoria Hospital.
Work on the Weeneebayko Area Health Authority project will involve the construction of a new hospital in Moosonee, Ontario that will replace the current Weeneebayko General facility on Moose Factory Island.
The new facility will feature an expanded emergency department, dialysis treatments and diagnostic imaging, inpatient beds in private rooms, new surgical suites, and expanded mental health and addictions programming.
It will also include a new lodge for local elders to stay in the community while receiving care.
Additionally, the existing Weeneebayko General Hospital will be renovated into a healthcare facility to provide a variety of services to patients on the island.
The healthcare centre will include diagnostic imaging capabilities, emergency health services, primary healthcare and physiotherapy treatments.
