Infrastructure BC announced it has released the Richmond Hospital Redevelopment Project: Phases 2 & 3 Request for Qualifications (RFQ) on behalf of Vancouver Coastal Health.

Vancouver Coastal Health is currently undertaking a multi-phase redevelopment of the Richmond Hospital campus.

The total project cost (inclusive of phases 1-4) is $1.959 billion, an increase of $1.1 billion since the business plan developed in 2020-21, primarily due to construction cost escalation related to market conditions across all sectors. The cost will be shared by the provincial government ($1.889 billion), Vancouver Coastal Health ($30 million) and Richmond Hospital Foundation ($40 million).

“Our government made a commitment to people in Richmond to ensure there are modern, high-quality health-care services in place now and into the future,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “The latest request for qualifications for a new patient care tower at Richmond Hospital that is seismically safe is great news for the community, as it signifies the progression of the redevelopment project in the right direction, and it assures people that they are one step closer to having the necessary acute care facility for their rapidly growing city.”

The Richmond Hospital Redevelopment Project: Phases 2 & 3 consists of Phase 2, the Yurkovich Family Pavilion (YFP) Design and Construction, and Phase 3, South Tower and Ilich Pavilion Renovations.

The Richmond Hospital Redevelopment Project is No. 72 on ReNew Canada’s 2024 Top100 Projects report.


“We are excited to announce the issuance of a request for qualifications for the new Yurkovich Family Pavilion at Richmond Hospital. This step brings us closer to significantly enhancing health care for the entire Richmond community. The new nine-floor acute care tower will ensure that patients receive the highest quality care and the new space will be an exceptional place to work for our dedicated staff and medical staff,” said Gail Malenstyn, vice-president, Richmond Acute, Vancouver Coastal Health.
