Public hearing set for proposed South Surrey care facility

A public hearing regarding plans for a 200-bed residential-care facility in South Surrey has been set for Monday at Surrey City Hall

A public hearing regarding plans for a four-storey, 200-bed residential-care facility in South Surrey has been set for 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5 at Surrey City Hall.

Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation is spearheading the $40-million development, which is eyed for the southwest corner of 17 Avenue and 156 Street.

Foundation officials shared plans for the facility during a public-information meeting held in late July.

A Nov. 21 planning report describes a four-storey, 166,618-square-foot building that would “provide more appropriate care for a number of seniors currently being cared for in the hospital’s acute-care ward. One level for 76 underground-parking stalls is also planned.

The facility would be built and owned by the foundation – which has committed to raise $10 million towards the cost – and operated by the Fraser Health Authority. Of the 200 beds, 112 would be for complex residential care, 73 for geriatric mental health and substance-abuse patients and 15 for a hospice residence. It would replace current residential care beds in the Weatherby Pavilion and the hospital’s existing hospice.

Monday’s meeting is the public’s last opportunity to comment on the application, which seeks an amendment to the Official Community Plan to redesignate the site from urban to multi-residential, and rezoning of the site to comprehensive development.

Surrey City Hall is located at 13450 104 Ave.
