Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Project Overview

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

At almost double the size of the existing facility (approximately 285,000 square feet), the new, acute care hospital and integrated services facility will be a centre for trauma services, orthopedic surgeries, pathology, radiology, clinical support and pharmacy services. The hospital will also be a training site for medical students in the Northern Medical Program.

A new hospital will…

  • Benefit patients and families
  • Benefit physicians and staff
  • Strengthen existing services
  • Offer new and expanded services
  • Strengthen the regional network of health-care services
  • Increase access to care, closer to home, for all Northwest BC residents
  • Support recruitment, retention and engagement of health care workers
  • Bring local economic benefits

  • Alert! Eby/Haugland intersection to be closed

    As of Tuesday, September 21, the intersection of Haugland Avenue and Eby Street will be closed for approximately three weeks, as the recently upgraded Mills Memorial hospital storm system is tied into the city’s water system.

    While some roads in the area will be closed, all traffic will be coordinated through detours and local residents will be able to access their properties.

    Visitors to the hospital are encouraged to use Tetrault Street to access the hospital while this work is underway. For those using public transportation, the Haugland Avenue bus stop, in front of the hospital, will be temporarily relocated approximately two blocks east on, towards Walmart.

    Work hours will be approximately 7am to 7pm, seven days a week.

    Please follow all signage and obey traffic personnel.

    We apologize for any inconvenience in advance but upgrading the storm and water drainage systems in the area is necessary as part of the construction of a new hospital.

    Any schedule changes will be posted on Let's Talk MMH.

    The MMH construction cam is now available to the public!

    That means any day, any time, you can see where construction of the new hospital is at.

    On the link you can view photos as recent as the previous day, as well as search photos of past dates, all the way back to when the cameras were first mounted in May 2021. The site also allows you to compare photos of different days and times, and view time lapse videos that show progress happening on site.

    The link has two different views from two video cameras mounted on the roof of the current hospital. One view faces north, overlooking the tower cranes and construction of the new hospital. The other view faces west, overlooking the future site of the new Seven Sisters facility.

    Check the MMH construction cam. Play around!

  • Join the MMH Community Advisory Working Group

    Northern Health is looking for two patient representatives from outside of Terrace, who live in Northwest BC and access services at Mills Memorial Hospital, to be part of a Community Advisory Working Group (CAWG) for the new hospital.

    This volunteer opportunity can be applied for though the Patient Voices Network. For more information and to apply, go to: Member, Community Advisory Working Group (CAWG), Mills Memorial Hospital (MMH) Replacement Project - Patient Voices Network (patientvoicesbc.ca)

    Deadline to apply is Wednesday, September 1, 2021.

    The purpose of the Community Advisory Working Group is to have a table for stakeholder and community input into design aspects of the Mills Memorial (MMH) Replacement Project. The Group will provide input pertaining to local culture, practices and experience, to ensure the new facility is welcoming, respectful and relevant.

    Representatives form local and regional community organizations and stakeholder groups, many of which are in Terrace, have been invited to join this group. This includes a patient representative from Terrace. As Mills Memorial Hospital provides services to residents throughout Northwest BC, however, we are looking for two patient representatives from outside of Terrace to participate and give a more regional perspective

    The Group will be a sub group of the MMH Capital Advisory Committee. The Group’s input will complement and be considered along with input collected from other engagement activities and platforms.

    Some of the topic discussed within the Community Advisory Working Group (CAWG) will overlap with topics discussed by the MMH Indigenous Advisory Working Group (IAWG), which was formed in the Spring of 2021. Sub-working groups focused on specific topics may be formed with members from both of these working groups.

    The first meeting for this community group is planned for September 8 and the next Indigenous Advisory Working Group (IAWG) meeting is planned for the next day, September 9.

  • Alert! Upcoming road work near hospital

    More road work, related to the construction of the new Mills Memorial Hospital, is coming down the pipe.

    Last month, upgrades were made to the storm and water system under Haugland Avenue west of the hospital’s main entrance towards Eby Street.

    In addition, a secondary water main, under Tetrault Street needs to be installed. This should take about three days during which a section of Tetrault Avenue near Keith Avenue, will be closed.

    Residents will still be able to access the businesses on the corner of Keith and Tetrault. However, drivers won’t be able to drive through Tetrault from Keith Avenue, or onto Keith Avenue.

    The work on Tetrault work should begin Saturday, August 28, and will take approximately 3 days.

    Similar to when upgrades were made under Haugland Avenue, a section of Tetrault, after the initial upgrades are made, will remain a gravel surface. That section will be paved after the contractor can do the final connection to the water main based on approved tie in procedures.

    PCL is working closely with the City of Terrace and its permitting approval process while planning and completing this work. Plans are in place to mitigate neighbourhood and community impacts including managing dust and traffic disruptions.

    Water system upgrades on Haugland avenue are almost complete.

    Paving the section of Haugland Avenue near Eby.
