    Last week, five students and their instructor from the Engineering Certificate program at Coast Mountain College were fortunate to get a tour of the Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement project site in Terrace.

    "The students were excited to tour such a large and complex project that will play a key role in the future of our community," said course instructor Stuart Toop.

    "The staff and engineers onsite took a large amount of time out of their busy day to show us around the project and answer all our questions," he continued. "PCL has offered amazing support to the Engineering Program at Coast Mountain College."

    PCL recently made a $5,000 donation to the Engineers and Geoscientists of BC's new scholarship program aimed to help eliminate educational and employment gaps with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students.

    In the fall of 2021 the Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement project released draft designs of the new hospital and Seven Sisters facilities currently under construction in Terrace, BC. We asked for your thoughts and if you had any questions.

    It’s time to share what we heard and answer some of the questions we received.

    Check out the MMH What We Heard: Mills Memorial Hospital Replacement Project Feedback and Questions booklet.

    Hint! You gave us feedback and insightful questions on all kinds of topics – including whether the new hospital will have a café, a bigger emergency department, bike racks, regional art, lights that kills bacteria and viruses, and much more.

    Thank you to everyone who took the time to review the designs. Your feedback will help the new Mills Memorial Hospital do the best possible job of serving the people of Northwest BC.

    The new hospital will offer a smoother, safer and more welcoming patient journey, as well as support the recruitment and retention of much-needed health care workers.

    Rob Smith, left, and Goldy Gill of PCL talk to students about their chance to plant a tree on the site of the new Mills Memorial Hospital.

    With the support of Northern Health, PCL is engaging schools and students in Terrace in a Tree Legacy Programinitiative to repopulate trees at the Mills Memorial Replacement Project site, once the build is complete.

    Starting in May 2022, participating students will be provided a tree plug with responsibility to nurture the plug in preparation for the 2024 planting season.

    PCL has arranged for local business, Uplands Nursery, to provide local tree species to symbolize the history and culture of the region.

    In a follow up to Earth Day (April 22), the program kicked off its first presentations to students at Thornhill Elementary School and Centennial Christian School on April 28. PCL will present to Ecole Mountainview on May 3 and Uplands on May 5.


  • We heard you: Exterior of new hospital has an updated look

    The exterior design of the new Mills Memorial Hospital has been updated with a more neutral look that blends into Terrace’s mountainous landscape. The new colours will also better accentuate landscaping features.

    We released the original draft exterior design in the fall of 2021 and received significant feedback.

    In the new design, white and grey panels have replaced many orange panels in the original design. The top floor is also much lighter.

    The footprint of the building, which is based on the design of the services and amenities inside, remains the same. We’ve also kept the wood aesthetic and accent features for the main floor and entrances.

    Updated exterior design

    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.
