The Richmond Hospital Redevelopment Project is in phase one: Park Centre and Rotunda decant and demolition

Richmond Hospital will be adding a new nine-floor acute care tower, the Yurkovich Family Pavilion, which includes an intensive care unit; a fully equipped medical imaging department; a pharmacy; and short-stay pediatrics. This will give Richmond, with its growing and aging population, the acute care it needs moving into the future.

The cost is approximately $860.8 million and will be shared by the provincial government through Vancouver Coastal Health and the Richmond Hospital Foundation.

Project scope

  • Yurkovich Family Pavilion - nine-floor acute care tower:
    • Emergency department with 86 spaces, up from 62
    • 11 operating rooms, up from eight
    • More pre- and post-surgical care spaces, increasing from 26 to 68
    • Earthquake-safe and constructed above the flood plain
    • Planned to be 100 per cent carbon neutral
  • Add 113 new beds to the hospital, bringing the total to 353
  • South Tower renovations to create new inpatient psychiatry and psychiatric emergency units
  • Milan Ilich Pavilion will also be renovated and be home to the Cancer Care Clinic

Patient benefits

  • Improved quality of care and patient and family experience
  • Reduced waiting time and turnaround time
  • Increased capacity to meet the growing demand

Richmond Hospital opened in 1964 and has 240 beds, serving Richmond, South Vancouver and Delta, as well as people using Vancouver International Airport and BC Ferries.
