Billions worth of hospital construction helping to spur B.C.’s economy

Hospital construction projects are leading the way in the Vancouver area, with $6.76 billion in work either planned or on the books.

Projects that have already started include a massive new $2.174-billion St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver — the largest hospital redevelopment project in British Columbia’s history — and the second phase of the estimated $1.49 billion, three-phase redevelopment at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster.



Lighting That Aims To Improve Human Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted healthcare facility managers to revisit nearly every aspect of their buildings in light of the lessons of the last 17 months. As a result, many are researching and planning upgrades that will incorporate lessons related to updated healthy building standards, increased demands from patients and staff, and overall streamlined operations to help their organizations operate more efficiently under new financial constraints.


The “Human Factor” in Healthcare Cleaning

In the push for cleaner and more hygienic healthcare environments, the “human factor” cannot be overstated. Having the best-laid plans and protocols is important, but a successful cleaning regime depends on people who can perform their tasks effectively and confidently.


Advice for Disinfecting Hospitals

The pandemic made the sanitation practices of healthcare facilities more stringent and creative. High-touch surfaces such as light switches or television remotes are consistently a top priority for these facilities. Disinfecting these areas is one part of the strategy to improve sanitation habits. 



4 Post-Pandemic Healthcare Construction Trends

The COVID-19 pandemic stressed the nation’s healthcare in ways no one thought was possible. Yet, dedicated healthcare workers stepped up and met the challenge by saving lives despite the often lack of materials, space, and facility systems that the industry now considers necessary. The ingenuity of medical professionals during the pandemic primarily inspires current healthcare construction trends and the widespread adoption of systems for the new normal.


$860-million upgrade and expansion approved for Richmond Hospital

The province has approved a long-awaited major expansion and improvements to Richmond Hospital.

The four-phase project includes a new nine-floor patient tower that will add 113 new beds to the hospital, more operating rooms, an expanded emergency department, and improved outpatient services in a redeveloped second tower.



Just over 20% of Yukon's health facilities at risk to future flooding, report warns

Flooding has been an immediate and pressing concern for Yukoners so far this summer, with some people now finding themselves under an evacuation alert as water levels near their homes creep up.

But a report out last month from Canadian Institute for Climate Choices (CICC) suggests that when it comes to floods, the territory needs to start looking decades into the future as well. 



Protecting Healthcare Facilities and Assets Using Access Control

When people think about access control systems, healthcare facilities do not immediately come to mind. But as with other industries, such as the financial sector and government entities, which typically incorporate access control into their facility design, facilities within healthcare are just as vulnerable to security breaches and have their own specific areas of risks and threats that need to be addressed. These risks and threats can run the gamut from workplace violence, pediatric and geriatric security concerns and emergency room issues to pharmacy control and parking lot security.

Healthcare Facilities Renew Focus on Sustainable Operations

Healthcare facilities have long paid a great deal of attention to the medical and financial side of their operations. Increasingly, they are facing scrutiny about the impact their operations are having on the environment.



Hospital Surfaces Target of New Research on Infection Control

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted healthcare facility managers to consider a range of new processes and products to prevent the spread of illnesses and hospital-acquired infections. Many have revisited their organizations’ cleaning and disinfection procedures in an effort to lower infection risks, but performing these tasks to the required standard is a time- and resource-intensive process. Now researchers are taking a closer look at the potential benefit of rethinking surfaces.
