You can help inform the health care solutions of the future

The new St. Paul’s will be designed with patients at the centre. We need to hear from you to understand your individual and community health needs and how the new St. Paul’s can support your health and wellness for the future. Planning for the new hospital and health campus will incorporate the latest data, best practices and technological solutions. Most importantly, throughout the life of the project we will rely upon feedback from the patients and the local communities we serve, as well as our care providers and researchers, to inform planning. Please contact us by email at thenewstpauls@providencehealth.bc.ca.
