When we were in the hopsital with Jack we slept in chairs by his bed and lived in an office next to the PICU.
The new PICU will not only be more equipped to handle severe health needs but will also provide beds and washrooms right in the facility so that parents are able to stay by their child's side.
BC Children ’s and BC Women’s Redevelopment Project got underway in September 2010. This project will see the construction of a major new acute care and diagnostic services hospital and other improvements to the Oak Street campus, to ensure that Children’s and Women’s have the facilities they need to maintain the highest standards of patient care well into the future. BC Children’s and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children, agencies of the Provincial Health Services Authority, provide expert care for the province’s most seriously ill or injured children, including newborns and adolescents.
The Relocation, Renovation and Demolition (Phase 1) of the BC Children"S and BC Women's Redevelopment project in Septmenber 2010.
The Redevelopment Project is expected to take six years to complete and has been organized for implementation in three phases:
Relocation, Renovation & Demolition (Phase 1)
Phase 1 includes site preparations for the new hospital and additional space for the UBC Faculty of Medicine MD Program and construction of a new clinical support building and free-standing child daycare centre.
Since September 2010, three new Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) beds have been added.
Construction of the new Acute Care Centre (Phase 2)
The new Acute Care Centre will contain:
New Emergency Department,
Sterile Processing Department;
Medical Imaging Department;
New 70-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and labour/delivery suite;
28 Bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit;
Three floors of private rooms for inpatients including one floor for a 27-bed oncology unit with adjacent oncology outpatient programs;
Additional underground parking stalls and
Additional academic space in new clinical spaces.
Renovation & Expansion (Phase 3)
Phase 3 includes renovations to the existing hospital buildings for use by BC Women Children
Based in Vancouver, BC Children’s and Sunny Hill reach across the province with vital health services that may not be available anywhere else in B.C. They provide specialized training in pediatric health care and work with renowned researchers to achieve better health for children and youth. As academic health centres, BC Children's and Sunny Hill are affiliated with the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, Child & Family Research Institute, and other education and research institutions.’s and BC Women’s are recognized for providing high-quality patient care. Although Children’s and Women’s provides excellent care, existing hospital facilities were not designed to accommodate the latest medical technologies or the current volume of patients, which increases every year.
