The goal of the North Island Hospital Project is to provide modern, effective, and appropriate inpatient and outpatient services to the communities of the North Island at two new state-of-the-art hospital campuses. The CSRHD board will have contributed $240.7 million towards the overall $606 million project completed fall 2017.
Four key objectives support this goal:
- Enhance North Island acute care capacity to meet growing and changing needs;
- Enhance quality of care for patients, especially elderly and Aboriginal populations;
- Improve access to services for all North Island communities; and
- Maximize staff and physician recruitment and retention potential.
