Access to the new Pediatric Emergency Department – only the second of its kind in BC – is an exciting development for families and will feature:

  • short waits
  • access to a kitchen area
  • draw on erasable bedside tables
  • watch tv while you are waiting
  • pediatric team available 24/7

  1. I’m quite excited to hear this. While I can’t make the open house, we’ve been there with our son on the pediatric side of emergency and they were great – this will help make them fabulous!!
