Innovation Magazine recently featured BC’s Royal Jubilee Hospital. HH Angus provided all mechanical, electrical and vertical transportation consulting engineering for this state-of-the-art 400,000 square foot, 500-bed acute care and psychiatric facility. The Patient Care Centre was designed to LEED Gold standard, delivering a high performance building that is both sustainable and green. Innovations include rainwater harvesting, 100% fresh air with heat recovery and user-controlled environment.
The first truly digital hospital, in British Columbia, the Patient Care Centre has end-to-end IP-based network infrastructure, connecting caregivers and patients more reliably and securely than had been possible to date. Real-time patient and equipment tracking, auto call-up of patient records when staff enter a patient room and integration of patient records onto TV sets are some of the digital advances in patient care.
