The new St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Campus policy planning program

City policy statement

The new site, located at 1002 Station street, is owned by Providence Health Care. Providence has requested that we create a policy statement to guide redevelopment of this site.

The policy statement will guide:

  • Land use
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation
  • Density
  • Building types and heights
  • Public benefits
  • Phases of development

Providence clinical plan

Providence Health Care, in coordination with Vancouver Coastal Health, is undertaking a concurrent clinical planning program and would like your input.

What's happening?

Questionnaire and focus group: what could be the potential social impacts of the new hospital site?

To help inform the new St. Paul’s Policy Statement, we have engaged CommunityIMPACT Consulting to prepare a social impact assessment to identify any potential positive or negative social impacts that the proposed development may have on people living or working nearby.

What do you think could be the potential impacts of the New St. Paul’s hospital site? Share your thoughts in our online questionnaire, or join upcoming focus group sessions for local residents and businesses.

 The questionnaire is available online until June 12.
