Project Overview

We are building a new, state-of-the-art hospital in Dawson Creek, BC, to address current and future health and patient care needs.

The vision of the Dawson Creek and District Hospital Replacement Project is to create a model of excellence in health care that will incorporate modern best practices and standards for the hospital, as well as meet the future needs of the region.

The new hospital will improve the healing environment and provide culturally safe care for residents of the Northeast. It will benefit patients, families, physicians and staff through strengthened existing services. The project will support recruitment, retention, and engagement of health care workers and bring local economic benefits to the City of Dawson Creek, surrounding areas, and local First Nations.

The current hospital is approximately 15,606 square meters in size, whereas the new hospital will be 25% bigger totaling approximately 19,400 square meters.

The new hospital will:

  • Have 24 additional beds, bringing the total up to 70 beds, all of which will be single rooms with ensuite washrooms.

  • Have a new emergency department that is double the size of the existing one, with treatment spaces increasing from 10 to 15.

  • Have space for a laboratory and diagnostic imaging, as well as physical rehabilitation.

  • Support new moms and families through a perinatal unit including labour, delivery, recovery and post-partum rooms and a nursery.

  • Bring mental health service delivery up to modern standards with a new inpatient suite and an increase of beds from 15 to 18.

  • Have a non-denominational spiritual room for use by people of all faiths and cultures.

  • Continue to provide a range of surgical services as well as chemotherapy, ambulatory care, radiology, clinical support and pharmacy services.

  • Promote culturally safe care and will be built with input and feedback from the local community, as well as surrounding Indigenous communities.

The budget for the Dawson Creek and District Hospital Replacement Project is approximately $377.86 million which will be shared by the provincial government, through Northern Health, and the Peace River Regional Hospital District.
