Kelowna General Hospital Ambulatory Care Centre
Location: Kelowna, British Columbia
As part of the larger Kelowna and Vernon Hospitals public-private partnership (P3) project, Graham’s scope of work for the LEED Gold Ambulatory Care Centre included a new six-storey, 377,000 sq. ft. Patient Ambulatory Care Centre and redeveloped Emergency Department with general clinics, day surgery, diagnostic services, renal dialysis, operating rooms, two shelled-in floors for acute inpatient psychiatry, inpatient beds, as well as a rooftop helipad, and a bridge link to the existing hospital.
Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) is the central Okanagan’s primary acute care health facility and one of two Interior Health tertiary referral hospitals that offer high-level, specialty medical care. Important to the area, KGH is the only hospital that provides full, specialty surgical programs such as neurosurgery and vascular surgery. The KGH expansion was designed to consolidate, expand and modernize outpatient services into one facility, and has been fully integrated into the existing hospital.
LEED strategies included stormwater management, construction waste management, water efficient landscaping, potable water use reduction, and exemplary use of recycled content.
