The Cowichan District Hospital Replacement Project is more than just a hospital. It’s a groundbreaking approach to healthcare design, with a patient-centred focus at its core. Our team worked tirelessly to create a facility that not only provides top-notch medical care but also fosters a healing environment.

The new seven-story hospital is a true state-of-the-art facility. Divided into a Diagnostic and Treatment (“D&T”) Block and Inpatient Tower, the hospital is designed to provide a comprehensive range of acute care services to the community.

The heart of the facility is the two-story heavy timber community hall that connects the D&T Block and Inpatient Tower. This space is designed to promote social interaction and connection, giving patients, families, and staff a warm and welcoming environment to gather and support each other.

One of the most important aspects of the project was incorporating a patient-centred approach to design. Our team worked closely with Indigenous Nations to ensure the facility was culturally sensitive and significant to the local community. We wanted to ensure the hospital not only meets the medical needs of the patients but also provides a healing environment that fosters a sense of community and belonging.
