Sitting on 18 acres just east of Vancouver’s downtown core, the Jim Pattison Medical Campus will be home to the new St. Paul’s Hospital—a 1.2 million square foot acute care hospital connected by sky bridge to, the Clinical Support and Research Centre (CSRC), a world-class research hub unlike anything else in Canada (or elsewhere for that matter).
- A magnet to attract and grow BC companies in life sciences, bio-technology, IT, AR/VR, and digital health.
- A catalyst for an entire health innovation precinct and R&D ecosystem – like Silicon Valley, but for health sciences.
- A place that will accelerate innovation, compassion, and social justice.
And this is just the beginning!
- We’re reimagining care pathways so you and your loved ones get the care you need no matter where you live.
- We’re making each touch point within the system more holistic to put the emphasis where it belongs: on wellness and sustainability.
- And we’re building incredible new spaces that will bring innovation – and compassion – to life for all British Columbians.
This is the future of health care. And it’s going to change everything.
The new St. Paul’s Hospital is where clinicians, scientists, researchers, and allied health professionals will discover better – more compassionate – ways to treat mental health and addiction, minimize the impact of chronic and infectious diseases, advance culturally safe Indigenous health care, promote healthy aging, and ensure pandemic preparedness.
This is where the heart and soul of St. Paul’s – a team of talented, tenacious people more than 6,000 strong – will continue to do what they do best: provide innovative care for patients and their families. Oh, and shoot for the moon.
Reimagine health care for patients, families, and caregivers across BC. Join us on this once-in-a-lifetime journey to the new St. Paul’s Hospital.

“We’re shifting toward a social model for seniors care because we know what can happen when we encourage residents to maintain as much autonomy as possible…when they have opportunities to find fulfillment through activity…when they can find solace in nature, and joy and purpose through community.”

“With 130 years of experience, Providence is a recognized leader in seniors’ care and research. Through our leadership, research, advocacy, and bold initiatives like the Centre for Healthy Aging, we’re bringing positive change and better health outcomes to older adults across BC.”
