onstruction of British Columbia’s highly-anticipated
new hospital is well underway, bringing with it an un-
precedented level of specialized care to the province’s
women and children. TheTeck Acute Care Centre (TACC) is part
of the second phase of the $678-million BC Children’s and BC
Women’s Redevelopment Project (C&W Redevelopment Proj-
ect) and is on track to open in November 2017.
The centre will be located on the Oak Street Campus of the BC
Children’s Hospital and BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre
in Vancouver and will offer care providers access to more in-
tegrated technology and equipment to support the delivery of
patient-centred care. The TACC will be the centrepiece of the
project, said Dave Ingram, Chief Project Officer of the C&W
Redevelopment Project.
“We need to make sure that we have the infrastructure to
meet the demand now and into the future,” Ingram said.
