Teck Emergency Centre

May 30th, 2012

A three-year renovation of St. Paul’s emergency area resulted in one of the most efficient and technologically advanced emergency centres in the country and a 20 per cent reduction in patient wait times.

The province of British Columbia, through Vancouver Coastal Health, provided $10 million to the project, while more than 1,200 individuals and corporate donors completed the remaining $4.7 million funding commitment. One of those donors was Vancouver-based mining company Teck Resources, which made a $2.5-million gift to the project – the single-largest corporate and capital donation in the history of St. Paul’s. In recognition of this gift, the area was named the Teck Emergency Centre and part of the donation used to create the Teck Emergency Centre Innovation Fund to support research, academic productivity and the development of best practices within the Emergency Department.
