THE City of Surrey has received a development application for a new hospital with an integrated cancer centre. With the planning and permitting process underway, construction of Surrey’s second hospital is slated to begin in 2023 and be completed by 2027.
“With the development process now officially underway, Surrey residents will soon have a second hospital to serve our growing city,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum. “I want to thank and applaud [Health] Minister [Adrian] Dix and the province for taking action on this much needed project. I want to assure Minister Dix that the City of Surrey will do everything in its part to fast track this development so it can be shovel ready as soon as possible.”
At $1.66 billion, Surrey’s second hospital is the largest provincial contribution to a health care project in the history of B.C.
