Queen Charlotte/Haida Gwaii Hospital
Queen Charlotte, British Columbia
Excelling in Community Health Care
Located in the Village of Queen Charlotte, the new Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Hospital will replace the deteriorated Queen Charlotte Islands General Hospital originally built in 1950. Scheduled for completion in fall 2015, the replacement Hospital will ensure the Village of Queen Charlotte and surrounding community residents receive quality health care services to meet their current and future needs. Bouygues Building Canada, along with their design partner Perkins + Will and Kirsten Reite Architect, collaboratively designed the facility to connect with the natural Haida Gwaii environment and streamlined the Hospital layout to improve the delivery of acute and emergency services.
The Hospital features eight acute-care beds, eight residential-care beds, as well as a labour, delivery and recovery suite. Modernized environments have been designed for the delivery of public and mental health/addiction programs and home/community care services along with designated spaces for diagnostic imaging, laboratory, and pharmacy services.
The hospital will be built to meet LEED Gold certification and will maximize the use of wood to align with the BC Wood First Act.
