Project Details

Project Description:  The Dawson Creek and District Hospital Replacement Project will result in a new state-of-the-art Dawson Creek and District Hospital that will be built in Treaty 8 territory, the ancestral home of the Beaver, Cree, Saulteau, Sicannie (Sikanni), and Slavey.  The new Hospital will serve a diverse population that includes the communities of Dawson Creek, Pouce Coupe, Chetwynd, Tumbler Ridge, Fort St. John, Hudson’s Hope and Fort Nelson.  It will also serve the First Nations communities of Blueberry River First Nation, Doig River First Nation, Fort Nelson First Nation, Halfway River First Nation, communities of Kelly Lake, Prophet River First Nation, Saulteau First Nations, and West Moberly First Nations; as well as Métis, Inuit, and urban Indigenous populations within the Peace Region of Treaty 8 territory.

The new Hospital will be approximately 24,500 square metres (263,000 square feet) and have 70 beds, an increase of 24. The emergency department is also increasing in size, with treatment spaces going from 10 to 15. The facility will continue to provide a range of surgical services as well as chemotherapy, ambulatory care, radiology, clinical support and pharmacy services. There will also be space for a laboratory, diagnostic imaging as well as physical rehabilitation. New parents and families will be supported by a perinatal unit including labour, delivery, recovery and post-partum rooms and a nursery. Mental health service delivery will be brought up to modern standards with a new inpatient suite and an increase of beds from 15 to 18.
