Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, Child & Youth Mental Health Program

Parkin has recently completed the Child & Youth Mental Health Program at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre. The project includes the conversion of a former administration department into a new child and youth mental health unit with inpatient and day program services. This new unit provides 8 beds with direct and discreet access from the Emergency Department into a home like setting that includes Activity, Dining and Treatment spaces within the unit and abundant daylight to all patient spaces.

The project also includes renovations to the adjacent adult mental health unit to provide new, relocated, outpatient registration and waiting areas, consolidation of areas within the adult mental health unit to provide better patient amenities spaces, upgrades to security systems, improved staff work flow and incorporation of learners’ spaces through new, collaborative, central work areas.
