Stantec is making impact on the health care system across Canada, having recently been awarded three significant healthcare projects. The company will provide design services for the Cariboo Memorial Hospital in British Columbia, Prince Albert Victoria Hospital in northern Saskatchewan, and Weeneebayko Area Health Authority in northern Ontario. These projects include inpatient and emergency care, helping to expand access to vital services to better meet the health needs of their respective communities.
Cariboo Memorial Hospital
The collaboration of Stantec and Graham Construction is providing design and construction services for the Cariboo Memorial Hospital Redevelopment Project in Williams Lake, British Columbia. The CAN$217.75 million expansion will be delivered via a progressive design-build model. New clinical and support spaces will include an emergency department, medical/surgical inpatient units, maternal care and women’s health, and pharmacy services.
Stantec’s integrated design team is providing architecture, interiors, structural, mechanical, electrical, information management/information technology, civil, landscape, acoustics, heliport, geomatics, and sustainability consulting services for the project which is expected to complete construction in 2025.
Prince Albert Victoria Hospital
Stantec will be responsible for technical advisory work and lead the design of the Prince Albert Victoria Hospital expansion and renewal in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. The project value exceeds CAN$300 million and will include a new acute care tower, the replacement of the existing mental health space and renovations to the current facility. Upon completion, the total number of beds available is expected to increase by approximately 40 percent, with space to expand further as needed.
The Stantec team is providing architecture, structural, civil, mechanical, electrical, information management / information technology, landscape, heliport, signage, wayfinding sustainability and energy modeling, clinical planning, community engagement, and commissioning for the project which is expected to open in 2025.
Weeneebayko Area Health Authority
The project will involve the construction of a new hospital in Moosonee, Ontario to replace the existing Weeneebayko General Hospital on Moose Factory Island. The new hospital will include inpatient beds in private rooms, an expanded 24/7 emergency department, modern surgical suites, dialysis treatments and diagnostic imaging, and expanded mental health and addictions programming—improving access and quality care to Ontario’s Indigenous communities. The Moosonee hospital campus will also include a new lodge, allowing local Elders to remain in the community while receiving care.
The existing hospital on Moose Factory Island will be redeveloped as a new healthcare centre to continue delivering services to patients on the island, including emergency health services, access to primary health care, diagnostic imaging capabilities, physiotherapy treatments, and increased health promotion.
Stantec is providing architecture, clinical planning, interior design, buildings engineering, landscape architecture, civil and transportation engineering, sustainable design, commissioning, and PDC (planning, design, and compliance) services for the project.
“Expanding access to care services is a top priority for hospitals and health systems nationwide and we are proud to support these initiatives,” said Tariq Amlani, senior principal and health sector leader for Canada at Stantec. “Our integrated team is focused on designing to optimize clinical workflow while improving patient and care team experiences.”
