B.C. Premier Christy Clark was on hand at Surrey Memorial Hospital on Tuesday to unveil the new Emergency department, the second-largest in Canada, according to the Government of B.C.
SMH has the busiest emergency department in British Columbia, with almost 100,000 patient visits per year – more than double its intended capacity.
The new facility includes separate areas for walk-in and triage, a mental health zone, a substance use zone, and a critical condition zone.
