VANCOUVER — Providence Health Care has gone to procurement for the new St. Vincent’s Heather long-term care home in Vancouver.
The new home will be built on the old St. Vincent’s Hospital site.
The building will have 13 storeys containing 240 beds in 20 “households” containing 12 residents in single-bed rooms, according to a news release.
The households will have living rooms, dining rooms and activity spaces as well as wheelchair accessible ensuite bathrooms. Several suites will also have connecting doors to allow couples and families to stay together.
The home itself will have a community hall, café, a non-denominational sacred space, creative, exercise and therapy space, hairdressing services, a 37-space child care centre, and dental and primary-care services.
Rezoning is expected to be completed by summer 2023 with construction set to begin in 2025 and finish in 2028.
“Vancouver Coastal Health is committed to delivering quality, holistic, person-centred care for seniors living in long-term care,” said Vivian Eliopoulos, CEO of Vancouver Coastal Health, in the release.
