The $55 million Lakes District Hospital and Health Centre has been completed ahead of schedule.
The facility is a two-storey building totalling approximately 6,100 square metres (65,000 square feet) aiming for LEED Gold certification.
Construction began in January 2014 with substantial completion of the hospital in December 2014. Current hospital services will transition into the new hospital and be open to patients in early February 2015.
PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc. built the new Lakes District Hospital and Health Centre. The total project cost of $55 million was shared between the Government of British Columbia and Stuart Nechako Regional Hospital District.
The old facility will be demolished this year and new parking lots will be paved.
