Royal Inland Hospital Redevelopment Project

A proposal has been submitted to upgrade the Royal Inland Hospital site infrastructure and construct a multi-storey parkade and clinical building. This is the first phase of redevelopment planning for the hospital. Subsequent phases will include a surgical inpatient building, an inpatient/outpatient building and associated infrastructure upgrading. Phase 1 construction will be funded in partnership between the Province and the Thompson Regional Hospital District.

About This Project

In April 2013, officials received word that the Royal Inland Hospital's redevelopment project was moving forward with the approval of the business case for a new Clinical Service Building, which includes outpatient clinical services, educational space and up to 350 new stalls for onsite parking.

The Clinical Services Building will provide space for several outpatient services. The new building also will provide space for the UBC medical school program, a new lecture theatre as well as improved vehicle and pedestrian access to the hospital.

In June 2011, Interior Health completed a master site plan for Royal Inland Hospital, which guides future development at the site. The plan highlighted priority areas requiring expansion and redesign, including hospital site access and parking, surgical services, in-patient areas and ambulatory care.

The first phase of redevelopment is estimated to cost $79.8 million, with the Thompson Regional Hospital District contributing $31.9 million. Procurement for the Clinical Services Building is estimated to begin late spring 2013, with construction starting in spring 2014, and open to the public by spring 2016.

Since 2007, about $80 million in investments have been made at Royal Inland Hospital. This includes $27.5 million for second-floor redevelopment and new MRI, $17 million for the Hillside Centre mental health facility, $11 million to relocate the intensive care unit and $10.75 million for redevelopment of the medical device reprocessing department.
