Our local Peace Arch Hospital is getting an expanded Emergency Department and surgical suite! Adrian Dix, the Minister of Health, was present last week for the ground breaking ceremony to start construction on the new project. Also present was White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic's Dr. Albert Lamprecht, who is also the head of the Emergency Department at Peace Arch Hospital. Dr. Lamprecht also gave a speech at the ceremony to mark to occasion.
The Ministry of Health is providing, through the regional health authority, $46.7 million, and the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation is providing $37 million, for a total project cost of $83.7 million. White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic has been a donor to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation since our opening in 2016. Dr. Bredenkamp and Dr. Lamprecht know the importance of investing back into the community that supports our clinic, as well as the community in which they live. We are proud and happy to support this incredible, local cause and will continue to do so!
The expanded emergency department will more than double the number of treatment spaces to 50 from 24. It will include a dedicated space for children and families, as well as a mental-health and substance-use space. The surgical suite will be built above the new, expanded emergency area, boosting the number of surgeries that will be able to be performed at the hospital.
