NEW Yurkovich Family Pavilion

Launching a New Era of Health Care in Richmond

The new nine-floor Yurkovich Family Pavilion will provide enhanced and increased health care services for Richmond’s growing population including an expanded emergency department, all single-occupancy patient rooms with ensuites, 208 in-patient beds, new surgical centre, and a fully equipped medical imaging centre, to name a few. The new facility will be earthquake safe, constructed above the flood plain, and 100% carbon neutral.

Making Moves

Within the existing hospital facility, relocation of the Cancer Care Clinic and the IV Clinic is now complete. Other major moves included those into the community: the Richmond Early Childhood Mental Health Program, Outpatient Pediatric Clinic, Noakes Maternity Clinic, and Diabetes Education Centre.

What’s Happening?

Currently, the interim Psychiatric Assessment Unit is being built next to the Emergency Department along with a new UBC Faculty of Medicine Medical Education Centre next to the Milan Ilich Pavilion. The construction of these spaces will make way for demolition and construction of the new acute care tower.

“Thanks to donors, a new acute care tower, the Yurkovich Family Pavilion, will mean that finally our facilities will be able to match the calibre of care that our Richmond Hospital medical teams offer.”
