Project name: Graham North Island Hospitals
Industry: Health & Education
Project size: US$488 million
Location: Vancouver Island, Canada
The North Island Hospitals Project (NIHP) is a public-private partnership (PPP) involving the design and construction of a 39,826-square-meter, 153-bed hospital in the Comox Valley and a 32,316-square-meter, 95-bed hospital in Campbell River. The goal is one hospital with two sites, requiring a high degree of coordination between the two facilities, which are located approximately 43 kilometers apart. Beyond providing a clinical environment for acute patient care, the Vancouver Island Health Authority intends to maximize efficiency for hospital staff by integrating systems both within and between the facilities.
