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

    The holiday season is a time many of us come together and show our true generosity.

    This is definitely the case for a number construction workers on the Mills Memorial Hospital site who joined forces this past month to raise a significant amount of money for Terrace's Salvation Army Food Bank.

    Northern Health would like to thank workers from PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc, as well as several of their contractors on site - Modern Niagara, Houle Electric and IDL Projects Inc - for raising funds to help make things better for those who need right now in the Terrace community .

    This is one of many contributions the workers and companies have made to our community and region so far, including and most importantly, to those most in need.

    Danielle Morrison of Terrace, who works as an Administrative Assistant for PCL on the Mills Memorial Project, gives a thumbs up as she hands over a large donation to the Food Bank.

  • What's happening inside those tents?

    Wondering what those green and yellow tents are?

    They are there to shelter the work on site from the elements. Concrete needs to stay as dry as possible while it's curing. Those colourful tents are protecting it from the snow and wind.

    Fun fact The concrete on the Mills Memorial Hospital site can be poured and set at temperatures as low as -15 Celsius and maintain its strength and integrity.

    Workers may be on site later than usual today completing a concrete pour.

    Wet weather conditions have unfortunately caused a slight delay in completing concrete work underway. Workers will aim to finish as soon as possible, but may need to be on site later than 7pm.

    While the work itself is not that noisy, the lights will remain on until the work is complete.

    While numbers fluctuate regularly, approximately 60% of the workers currently on the Mills Memorial Hospital construction site are from the region. In addition, more than 20 local businesses have been contracted for a variety of services throughout the past five months of construction.

    Kelly Lufkin, PCL Administrative Assistant and Document Controller

    Kelly Lufkin has lived in Terrace on and off for 27 years, settling here permanently in 2004 to raise her two children, Tyler and Olivia, with her spouse Raegen.

    “We enjoy spending time in our yard, exploring all the hidden gems Terrace has, family game nights, watching movies, travelling, and spending time with our friends and family,” Kelly said.

    Kelly started working for PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc. (PCL) as the Administrative Assistant/Document Controller for the Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement Project on September 1.

    Kelly was a stay-at-home mom for about 10 years. She graduated from college at age 35, then eased back into work at her kids’ school as a Special Education Assistant. She then worked at Mills Memorial Hospital in a couple different positions, first, booking surgeries and later on, working in the diagnostics department.

    “I applied at PCL because I felt like the position suited me and would work well for my home life,” Kelly said.

    In her new position, Kelly supports PCL’s project management team.

    “The company and people have been instantly welcoming,” Kelly said. “I think the project is coming along great. It’s exciting to watch the progression and be part of it. I have no experience in construction, so it’s been a great learning experience. I was surprised how quickly things move.”

    In addition to general administrative tasks, Kelly maintains PCL’s project documents, ensuring they are accurate and distributed appropriately.

    “I like that the job changes. And it’s exciting to see the progress of the hospital being built,” Kelly said. “I’m extremely happy for our community. This is something we’ve needed for a long time.”
