Dignitaries ceremonially open the emergency room at Kitimat General Hospital.

ER re-opened at Kitimat General Hospital

A $811,000 upgrade to the Kitimat emergency room is officially finished.

After $811,000 in renovations in Kitimat General Hospital’s emergency room, staff are now back to work in regular facilities after a mobile medical unit had been filling the gap during the work.

A number of dignitaries were on hand for the ceremonial opening, people from local council, the Northwest Regional Hospital District, the provincial government, and the Haisla Nation.

The work to the ER includes the addition of an observation room, a clinical workstation, a medication and storage room and a new walk-in patient triage area.

The work was done by Vector Projects, based in Kelowna.

The project was funded by Northern Health, the North West Regional Hospital District and the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation provided an additional $10,000 for the project.
