  • Teaching and research space
  • Rooftop helipad
  • More parking
  • More beds
    • 25 Intensive Care beds

Renovations to the existing hospital will complement the new tower. They include:

  • Expanding the Family Birthing Unit and increasing number of single-family rooms in it
  • An enlarged and renovated north entrance to the hospital
  • Renovations to the kitchen so that it will have the capacity to handle the demands of the new tower
  • Renovations to provide additional space to Sterile Processing & Supply
  • Renovations to the Linens and Logistics areas to provide better work flow and increased capacity, and
  • Other infrastructure upgrades that will benefit the entire campus

With the help of our team at Iridia, the Surrey Memorial Hospital expansion will address capacity and efficiency, well into the future. At Iridia, we engage with this project by providing assistance in the area of clinical and non-clinical physician services.

We are excited to be taking this journey with Fraser Health and look forward to all the benefits the Critical Care Tower will provide once open.

Opening Dates:

Emergency Department: Fall 2013
Rest of Tower: Spring 2014
