There are three major hospital redevelopment projects currently in play in Metro Vancouver with big implications for entire neighbourhoods.

Join us for an informative panel discussion and open Q&A session with key urban health facility project and sector leaders whose experience and insights will help shed light on:

  1. What the future holds in facility development
  2. How Metro Vancouver is being prepared to meet current and future health care needs
  3. What opportunities and challenges these redevelopments present

The redevelopment of St. Paul’s Hospital is a hot topic. The Royal Columbian Hospital redevelopment plan is getting underway. That health project will be the largest of its kind this province has undertaken in over thirty years. Phase 2 of BC Children’s and BC Women’s Hospital’s redevelopment is in progress. Phase 3 will ultimately include the relocation of Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children to the Oak Street campus and expansion of the birthing program for BC Women’s Hospital & Health Centre.

In this Q&A format, you will hear what has been learned from recent projects and what key considerations and emerging urban health care best practices are helping shape what the new projects will look like before the floor is opened up for your questions.


  • Dave Ingram, Chief Project Officer for BC Children’s Hospital and BC Women’s Hospital Redevelopment
  • Darlene MacKinnon, Executive Director, The Royal Columbian Hospital (Former Chief Clinical Planning Officer for the Redevelopment of St Paul’s Hospital, Providence Health Care)
  • Alan Grossert, Fraser Health Authority, Executive Director, Lower Mainland Facilities Management
  • Paul Landry, Chief Project Officer, St Paul’s Hospital Redevelopment
  • Marco Buccini, President of MB Architecture Inc., and Director of Design Management, Ellis Don (Former Fraser Health Authority Executive Director Strategic Development and Real Estate, Lower Mainland Facilities Management)
  • Alan Linsley, Senior Vice President, The Plenary Group
  • Moderator: Ron McIntyre, Cannon Design

Both the St. Paul’s Hospital and Royal Columbian Hospital projects expect the facilities to be designated centres of excellence. The Royal Columbian Hospital redevelopment plan includes an ambitious vision that sees the entire Sapperton area becoming a designated health research precinct with ancillary zoning to attract redevelopment around the hospital. It is anticipated that a similar approach is being considered for St. Paul’s new Station Street site.

For discussion:

  • Patient services – goals for service levels in the urban context and how that will be addressed through various approaches such as the focus on Centres of Excellence
  • The challenges redevelopment brings for health care providers, communities, industry and business
  • The opportunities that exist as this strategic shift takes place in Metro Vancouver including adopting a mixed use campus and overall community precinct planning approach to hospital developments
