For the New St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Campus Project, 2021 was a big year. We take a moment to reflect on our progress and we give you a sneak peak of some exciting project updates to expect in 2022.

2021’s incredible progress

For the new St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Campus, 2021 was filled with milestones. We:

We’ve made major strides in getting the future hospital off the ground, so what’s next?

Full steam ahead in 2022

It will be another busy year – here’s what you can expect:


  • Excavation will be wrapping up in the spring and we’ll begin the ‘building phase’ as PCL starts pouring concrete for the hospital’s foundation.
  • The first two cranes are expected to be installed in February, with the rest (for a total of five) to follow throughout the spring.
  • By the end of 2022, concrete slabs will be placed for each floor of the 4-level parkade. Once that’s done, the construction crews can start to build the structure of the future 11-storey hospital in 2023!

2022 Project Highlights

  • One of the shortlisted developers will be selected as our partner to design, build and develop the CSRC, our new state-of-the-art research centre, which will be steps away and connected to the new hospital.
  • Full-scale mock up rooms will be built offsite so our doctors and clinical staff can test and refine the design of new operating rooms, patient rooms and more.
  • We’ll begin test driving a new Clinical Operations Centre, similar to an air traffic control tower, at St. Paul’s Hospital. The new hospital will use real-time data and analytics to orchestrate thousands of processes, patients, and staff that flow through the hospital.

Thank you to staff, medical staff, and patient partners for providing your input into the design and future of our new hospital and health campus. We appreciate your time and energy in helping us bring to life our bold vision to transform care.
