Engagement Session: Putting the Patient at the Centre of Care

Posted On: Wednesday October 21, 2015

As part of continuing stakeholder engagement activities regarding the renewal of St. Paul’s Hospital, Providence Health Care (PHC) would like to invite you to an information-sharing and feedback session on Wednesday, October 28, at St. Paul’s Hospital.

PHC is embarking on a dynamic redevelopment that will contribute to a world-class, integrated system of high-quality care and research in British Columbia, located at Station Street, Vancouver’s False Creek Flats area. This redevelopment planning includes planning for how we will deliver clinical services in the new hospital/integrated campus and in residential care.
