Redevelopment Projects Horizon Health Network is at various stages of several large capital projects in our busiest hospitals. These projects will revolutionize the way care is delivered, and provide patients, clients, staff and physicians with state-of-the-art technology in a space equipped to provide safe and quality care. These are some of the largest redevelopment projects in Horizon’s history and we are proud to share the progress and process as it unfolds. These significant investments in health care will help improve the health and wellbeing of our community members well into the foreseeable future. Learn more about these projects below. The Moncton Hospital (TMH) Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital (DECRH) Saint John Regional Hospital Obstetrics and Newborn Care A new, more family‐centred Obstetrics and Newborn Care building will include a Labour and Birthing Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NNICU) and Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic. These three units will be relocated from their previous location within TMH and merged into a newly constructed addition between the Professional Arts Building on Arden Street and the hospital’s main entrance on MacBeath Avenue. This new space will feature modern and private patient rooms for all stages of birth, each with individual washroom facilities. This will improve outcomes for the mother, reduce the length of hospital stay, prevent the spread of infection and provide a safety- and quality-focused patient care environment. The construction of this project is possible thanks to the Friends of The Moncton Hospital’s Extraordinary Care Campaign and government investments. Construction began July 27, 2020, with occupancy early 2023. Dr. Sheldon H. Rubin Oncology Clinic The addition of an outdoor awning is complete at the Dr. Sheldon H. Rubin Oncology Clinic at Horizon’s The Moncton Hospital. This donor-funded addition was made possible thanks to The Friends of the Moncton Hospital Foundation and will protect oncology patients entering the building by keeping them safe from inclement weather like snow, ice and rain, as well as provide a shaded space in the summer. An important addition for patient care! Read more from the Friends Foundation. In 2007, six program areas at the DECRH were identified as priorities for redevelopment. The areas include the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Maternal Newborn Services, Ambulatory Procedures Unit (APU), Surgical Day Care Unit (SDCU), Surgical Suite and Medical Device Reprocessing. Functional programs were developed for these areas and in 2013 and 2014 the six functional programs were updated and two additional areas for Specimen Collection and Clinical Records were completed. Planning, design and construction began at Horizon’s DECRH in 2016 for a large overhaul and additions to the hospital. The project involves a three-story south addition, a one-story west addition, and a new east entrance vestibule addition. To support the new additions, work is being done to expand parking, update the emergency generator facility and perform required mechanical and electrical systems upgrades. This major redevelopment consists of many phases and contracts. These additions and major renovations will provide the space and infrastructure necessary to deliver care in New Brunswick’s capital city, which over the years has outgrown the hospitals capacity as it currently stands. As a major regional hospital within Horizon, the DECRH provides a comprehensive range of patient care services to the area and referral support to smaller health care facilities in the area and the redevelopment will provide significant benefits. Completion of this multi-year project is expected by 2027. Ambulatory Care Clinic Construction drawings are nearly complete for the redevelopment of SJRH’s Ambulatory Care (Clinic 1). Clinic 1 is the busiest clinic at SJRH and has not been updated since 1982. The renovation and expansion will enhance patient care and allow procedures previously performed in the operating room (OR) to take place in the clinic, as day surgeries. Renovations will allow for more space, better patient flow, and a modernized approach to patient care. The Ambulatory Care project is made possible by funding from the SJRH Foundation. Construction was expected to begin the spring of 2020, with occupancy late 2021. Due to COVID-19 tendering for construction has been delayed. What’s Next? These projects are just the beginning! In Saint John, design and planning will resume in September 2020 for the Phase 1 of the SJRH Master Plan. Phase 1 includes a major expansion to the south of the hospital, which will include oncology, the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Ambulatory Procedures Unit (APU). In Moncton, a new Coronary Care Unit is being planned for TMH. TMH Coronary Care services provides intensive care, monitoring, treatment, and education to a variety of patients requiring cardiac care. Coronary Care services are provided by an interprofessional team of specialists and are part of a continuum of cardiac services provided at TMH and other Horizon hospitals. The expansion will consist of a Coronary Care Unit and a Coronary/Step-Down Unit. Planning and Design will begin in fall 2020.
