The provincial government shared preliminary designs of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre redevelopment project with central Albertans during a public information session last week. 

Along with preliminary design drawings, attendees were shown a video simulating a flyover of the new patient tower and power plant.   

Project representatives were also on hand to speak about the project.   

“As the MLA for Red Deer-North and the Health Minister, I'm very proud of the progress we've achieved, and I remain dedicated to advocating for this project. Albertans should be able to access health care when and where they need it. This project will improve health outcomes for Albertans living in Red Deer and across central Alberta by increasing the facility’s capacity and providing much-needed services and resources, including new cardiac catheterization labs, close to home,” Adriana LaGrange, Minister of Health said.

Design work began in June 2023. With schematic design now complete, the hospital redevelopment is on schedule and on budget.   

The next stage of the project, design development, is now underway. Once complete, the new expansion will add up to 200 beds to the existing facility, bringing the total number of beds to up to 570.  

There are two major construction phases of the redevelopment, including the construction of a new inpatient tower, expansion and renovation of the hospital’s main building, and the construction of an ambulatory care building.   

The project will also upgrade services throughout the hospital, including adding six new operating rooms, a new Medical Device Reprocessing department, and new cardiac catheterization labs.
