EllisDon Infrastructure has announced that it has been selected as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance, and maintain a new Patient Care Tower at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, British Columbia, south-west Canada. The total investment required for the project is CAD417 million (US$319.8 million).
The project will be completed in two phases and will consist of the new Patient Care Tower as well as significant renovations to the existing emergency department, pediatrics, post-anaesthetic recovery unit and morgue of the hospital.
The nine-storey tower is expected to include three floors of inpatient beds dedicated to mental health and medical/surgical units; a new surgical suite; a perinatal centre and private labour and delivery rooms, obstetrics and postpartum beds; and a neonatal intensive care unit.
Construction on the new tower is slated for completion by early 2022 and renovations by 2024.
