Site preparation for RIH Clinical Services Building underway

Interior residents are one step closer to a new $79.8-million Clinical Services Building at Royal Inland Hospital

KAMLOOPS – Interior residents are one step closer to a new $79.8-million Clinical Services Building at Royal Inland Hospital, with the start of Phase 1 of the hospital’s redevelopment on Sept. 13.

“It is very exciting to watch as development gets underway and work progresses at Royal Inland Hospital,” said of Minister of Health Terry Lake. “Once complete, the Clinical Services Building will feature new expanded clinical outpatient space, improved building access and additional parking that will benefit patients not only in Kamloops, but across the Interior.”

The site preparation consists of excavating the front lawn of Royal Inland Hospital and relocating hydro and other utility services to prepare for construction starting next spring.

 

The new Clinical Services Building will improve access to care and provide expanded space for a variety of services, including the UBC medical school and clinical educational program, expanded medical outpatient services, and up to 350 additional parking stalls.
