This is a $600 million dollar project, and will involve the construction of two new hospitals, one in Campbell River, and one in the Comox Valley.   

A 153-bed Comox Valley hospital will be built in Courtenay near the Lerwick / Ryan Road intersection.  The Comox Valley work will create approximately 1,000 direct jobs and over 750 indirect jobs in industries supplying goods and services used in construction.

A 95-bed Campbell River hospital at the existing hospital site on the corner of Birch Street and 2nd Avenue will be built.  The Campbell River work will create approximately 900 direct jobs and over 650 indirect jobs.

Construction will begin in summer 2014, with completion estimated for 2017.

The NIHP has named Tandem Health Partners as the selected proponent for this public private partnership.
