The Royal Inland Hospital Patient Care Tower represents a transformative two-phase initiative aimed at elevating patient-centred care while fostering community engagement. Comprising a state-of-the-art nine-story patient-care tower and extensive enhancements to vital departments like emergency services, pediatrics, post-anesthetic recovery, and the morgue, this project is poised to redefine healthcare standards.

The integration of the new tower into the existing campus is highlighted by a visionary multi-story, skylit atrium designed by EllisDon. This space transcends mere structural necessity, evolving into an inviting indoor sanctuary that surpasses regulatory requisites, enhancing the hospital’s ambiance.

Phase 1 focuses on crucial areas such as Adolescent, Adult, and Geriatric Mental Health Inpatient units, Maternal Newborn/NICU, Surgical Suite, and a rooftop heliport. Phase 2 concentrates on bolstering Emergency, Morgue, Paediatric Inpatient, and PARR & Day Surgery facilities. Notably, WoodFirst elements feature prominently in both interior spaces and the exterior soffit cladding, complementing the welcoming entrance. With a commitment to sustainable architecture, the project sets its sights on achieving LEED Gold certification, reflecting the hospital’s dedication to responsible and eco-conscious healthcare practices. As the hospital advances, it remains deeply rooted in its pledge to prioritize patient welfare and serve as an integral, supportive force within the local community.
