If Budget 2024 passes, the 2024 Capital Plan would provide $810 million over the next three years toward a $1.8-billion investment for redevelopment of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. Schematic design on the project was recently completed. The next step is design development, which entails creating the entire construction plan, including building finishes as well as plumbing and electrical components. The project continues to be on time and on budget.

Throughout redevelopment, the Red Deer Hospital will remain operational.

The Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre offers specialized services and advanced care programs. It is also the primary referral site for many smaller rural hospitals.  

The redevelopment of Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre aligns closely with Alberta Health Service’s priority areas, as it will help improve patient flow and reduce emergency department wait times through increased capacity, and supports the Alberta Surgical Initiative by providing additional pre- and post-operative spaces. 

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. 

Quick facts

  • There are three major construction phases of the redevelopment, which will be run as two separate projects:  
    • Project 1: construction of a new inpatient 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.  
  • The project will upgrade several services throughout the hospital site including: 
    • an additional inpatient 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
