Grande Prairie new regional hospital

 

Funding:

$540 Million

Highlights:

  • A new regional hospital and cancer centre in Grande Prairie will help more northern patients receive specialized and complex care, closer to home and with shorter wait times.
  • The new hospital in Grande Prairie will function as a regional referral centre, providing health services to northwestern Alberta residents.
  • It will improve access and utilization of secondary level health services, including assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and preventative services associated with more complex health problems, generally provided by specialist physicians and other specialized health professionals.
  • The new 57,000m² facility will complement the existing Queen Elizabeth II Hospital.
  • Two major components will be developed in conjunction with the new facility:           
    • A new, approximately 4,200m² comprehensive Grande Prairie Cancer Centre, providing radiation and chemotherapy treatment, as the northern element in the Cancer Corridor Program.
    • An approximately 3,900m² Learning Centre for the Grande Prairie Regional College. This module is intended to accommodate academic and practical training related to health careers.
  • The existing QEII Hospital will continue as a health care facility to be used to provide ambulatory, community and other health services. The redevelopment provides an opportunity to support integrated, accessible and family-centred care. Alberta Health Services will operate on the two sites..
