Providence Health Care (PHC) has selected Perkins+Will, in association with Sterling Planning Alliance (Sterling) and Farrow, as the team to undertake a key step in the development of a business plan for the new St. Paul’s Hospital and integrated health campus on Station Street in Vancouver.
The team will develop a functional program, concepts and indicative design for the project—a complex and detailed process that determines the space, designs, size and types of facilities required to house the future care programs and services.
Currently, the St. Paul’s redevelopment project is in the clinical planning stage, which involves gathering input from patients, community stakeholders, St. Paul’s staff, physicians and researchers, Ministry of Health and other health authorities and academic partners to determine what services St. Paul’s patients require, in what settings and by which providers. The next stage involves the Perkins+Will team developing conceptual facility, space and building design requirements to fit the care programs and services for the new St. Paul’s health campus, as identified in the clinical planning process.
In addition to their work on the St. Paul’s Ambulatory Care Centre in 2012, Sterling have provided master planning services for large-scale multi-million dollar projects, such as the Baystate Medical Center Hospital of the Future in Springfield, Massachusetts, Oxford Churchill Hospital in the UK, University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, Connecticut, New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, and the National University of Singapore.
The new St. Paul’s and integrated health campus will be one of the largest and most ambitious health care projects in British Columbia. It will be a model for wellness, promoting health, managing illnesses, and providing globally-recognized integrated care, research and teaching programs in such areas as heart and lung health, kidney/renal care, mental health, HIV/AIDS, complex urban populations and seniors.
