Proven Public Private Partnership (P3) Practices Mitigate Risks and Support a Safe & Secure Environment

Fort St. John Hospital

Size: 30,000 m²
Location: Fort St. John, BC


The Fort St. John hospital was designed, built and is operated under the P3 model.  This modern facility allows patient care providers to deliver new and enhanced services to the region improving the overall health care services and subsequently patient outcomes.

The facility includes a 55-bed acute care building and 124-bed residential care building.  Additional highlights include an expanded emergency room and ambulatory care department, an intensive care unit, larger operating rooms, endoscopy suite, and a birthing centre.  The facility also allocates significant academic space to the University of Northern B.C.’s Northern Medical Program.

Being part of the P3 team, from the initial stages, afforded ACML the opportunity to have input into both the project design and construction. This helped ensure a robust facility for patient care.
