Working to improve the health of the population and the quality of life of the people we serve.
This state-of-the-art 300-bed centre replaces the aging MSA Hospital. At 60,000 square metres, the building is almost three times the size of the old hospital and provides MRI services, general surgery, nuclear medicine, renal dialysis, specialized obstetrics and nursery care, pediatric services and other specialized services.
The first acute care hospital to be built using the public private partnership (P3) model, the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre is the largest construction project to-date in the Fraser Valley. It is also the first time in Western Canada that a cancer centre has been integrated with a hospital from the ground up.
Contributing to both the local and regional economy, the project was delivered on time and on budget ($355 million for construction and equipment). It was designed and constructed to minimize the impact on the environment and will consume about 40 per cent less energy compared to many other hospitals. Featuring lots natural light from its large windows, rooftop gardens, green spaces and courtyards, the hospital is designated LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold by the Canada Green Building Council.
The BC Cancer Agency’s Abbotsford Centre is the fifth regional cancer centre to open in the province and represents a critical expansion of the provincial cancer control network reducing patient travel into Greater Vancouver for services.
