Alternate Care Site Update

Vancouver Convention Centre prepares for Utilization as an Alternative Care Site


As part of the B.C. Pandemic Provincial Coordination Plan and in support of the Government of British Columbia, the Vancouver Convention Centre is working with Vancouver Coastal Health and other key partners to prepare its West building for utilization as an Alternative Care Site should it be required.

The Alternate Care Site will be a province-wide resource. It will add more bed capacity for lower acuity, non-COVID-19 patients to allow additional capacity within regional hospitals for critically ill COVID-19 patients who may need access to critical care units

The team of Vancoucer Convention Centre is proud to work with the Government of British Columbia and Vancouver Coastal Health to support British Columbians during this unprecedented situation, and they are committed to ensuring the health and safety of every person within our facility.
