As part of a broader strategy to improve patient access to surgery, this development project will transform UBC Hospital into a hub for scheduled surgeries within VCH-Vancouver.
Upgrading the hospital’s inpatient units in Koerner Pavilion will enable UBC Hospital to care for more complex surgical cases and Vancouver General Hospital to focus on providing emergency and highly complex and specialized surgical services without delaying or cancelling other patients’ scheduled surgeries. In addition, this project will enhance other clinical and support service spaces at UBC Hospital to provide quality wraparound care and support for patients and families.
The total capital cost for the UBCH Renewal Project is $26 million. This project will be fully funded by VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.
