Penticton Regional Hospital

David E. Kampe Patient Care Tower

This project involves the design, construction, financing and maintenance of a new patient care tower at Penticton Regional Hospital.

The HH Angus team is designing all new mechanical facilities – such as boiler plants and chiller plants – to post disaster requirements, to be compliant with provincial regulations. Also, BC’s Wood First Act requires that sustainable materials be used throughout the building. The winning design included widespread use of wood elements to create a warm, tranquil environment for patients and visitors.

As part of Interior Health’s commitment to sustainability and green buildings, the new patient care tower will be designed and constructed to achieve LEED® Gold certification.

Boiler plants and chiller plants |  New ambulatory care centre | 480-stall parkade | Renovations to expand ER | Targeting LEED Gold

Design for comprehensive services

When complete, the tower will feature an ambulatory care centre, surgical services centre, 84 medical/surgical inpatient beds in single patient rooms, a new medical device reprocessing unit, and program space for the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Medicine.

Enabling consolidation

The Tower will enhance access to services and improve patient care through consolidation of programs currently dispersed throughout the hospital.

New and renovated spaces

The project includes two phases, Phase 1 being the design and construction of the new tower and 480-stall parkade. Phase 2 will see renovations to the existing hospital to create an expanded ER that will be almost four times the size of the current ER, as well as renovations to the pharmacy stores and support areas.
