Expansion to the third floor of Jim Pattison Pavilion North at VGH will benefit patients, physicians and staff in the following – and many other – ways.
16 larger, universally sized ORs with the standardized layout to provide
maximum flexibility meeting current CSA standards, including infection control.
ORs with integrated state-of-the-art technology and equipment,
including educational connectivity.
40-bed consolidated pre- and post-op unit
to improve the continuity of patient care and reduce OR holds.
Pre-op anesthesia intervention bays
to ensure sufficient time and space for anesthesia procedures.
Updated and enhanced plumbing, electrical and HVAC
to maintain safety and to support new equipment and technologies.
A new elevator is dedicated to JPP 2 and 3 to support the patient movement.
Smaller, easier to access sterile cores, each supporting a pod of 8 ORs
to minimize travel time and enable just-in-time stocking.
Additional and larger storage spaces in the clean corridors.
Appropriately sized and configured workspaces for
Anaesthesia, Perfusion, Medical Imaging, Housekeeping and other services.
A new staff lounge and enhanced locker space.
