  • A new emergency department with 23 treatment spaces, an increase of 12; two trauma treatment bays; a seclusion room; an ambulance carport and a separate public entrance.
  • A new medical/surgical inpatient unit with 36 beds, an increase of 16.
  • A new mental-health and substance-use inpatient unit with eight single-occupancy rooms and a patient seclusion room.
  • An expanded ambulatory care and oncology unit with 16 renovated treatment spaces.
  • An expanded maternity and women’s health unit with four single-occupancy rooms for maternity care, two nursery rooms and two women’s health beds in private rooms. The maternity area will allow parents to stay in the same room with their babies until they are ready to go home.
  • An expanded pharmacy, providing additional space for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
  • An interfaith sacred space, which will allow for traditional cultural and healing practices.
  • 71 new parking stalls.

As part of the Province’s commitment to environmental sustainability and green buildings, the addition at CMH will be designed and constructed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification at a minimum.
