Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre (Calgary)

Construction of the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre (formerly the Calgary Cancer Centre) was completed in December 2022 and is anticipated to open to the public in 2024.

This project was an economic driver in Calgary:

  • creating approximately 8,770 well-paying construction and construction-related jobs
  • generating approximately 8 million work hours to complete the construction of the facility

The new centre covers approximately 186,000 square metres (over 2 million square feet) and has:

  • 13 above-grade levels
  • 5 levels of underground parking (1,650 parking stalls)

Services to be delivered at the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre are based on clinical priorities that AHS identifies and include:

  • outpatient cancer clinics
  • 160 inpatient unit beds
  • wet and dry research labs
  • clinical and operational support services
  • clinical trials unit and research laboratories
  • systemic and radiation treatment services, including 15 radiation vaults
  • new on-site underground parking with 1,650 stalls

Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre

Work is on schedule for the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre redevelopment. This project is now in design phase.

There are three major construction phases of the redevelopment, which will be run as two separate projects:

  • Project 1: construction of a new patient tower, and an expansion and renovation of the existing hospital’s main building.
  • Project 2: construction of an ambulatory care building using a public-private partnership (P3) delivery model.

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.

The project will upgrade several services throughout the hospital site including:

  • an additional new patient tower
  • six new operating rooms
  • new Medical Device Reprocessing department
  • new cardiac catheterization labs
  • renovations to various areas within the main building
  • newly renovated and expanded emergency department, and
  • a new ambulatory clinic building to be located adjacent to the surface parkade.
