People in the North Cariboo will have better access to health care at GR Baker Memorial Hospital as construction completes on a new emergency department and intensive care unit (ICU).
The new addition was built on the territory of the Lhtako Dene Nation and will open on April 14, 2023. The provincial government invested $27 million in the project through Northern Health and the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District.
“The redeveloped GR Baker Memorial Hospital will have more space and the latest technology, so people can get the care when they need it in a modern environment,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “The hospital has served the region well for more than 60 years and, with these upgrades, it will continue to offer high-quality care for decades to come.”
