Burns Lake, BC

The new Burns Lake Hospital will become the central location for Integrated Health Care within the City of Burns Lake and the surrounding Catchment area. The hospital has been designed to incorporate distinct functional zones, with a clear hierarchy separating Public from Staff and Secure areas. Circulation within the new building has been designed to be simple and understandable. The Interiors will be designed to create a warm welcoming environment while still addressing the issues of durability and infection control. All patient rooms have windows that take advantage of the views offered towards the South West and North West. Colours and materials will identify the individual zones as well as assisting in way finding. Wood panelled walls, public art as well as display cases will be used throughout the common public areas to create an inviting and visually rich environment.
