Providence Healthcare has released a pair of new concept designs for the planned St. Paul’s health campus on the False Creek Flats.

The designs are titled “Urban Court,” and “Pedestrian Spine,” with the key difference being the orientation of the main hospital building and the form that public space will take.

The concepts also offer a new look at the basic building blocks of the health campus.

The proposals include a mental health facility, dedicated research facility, outpatient clinics, along with a medical office, hotel, and retail spaces.

Clinical Planning Physician Lead Dr. Jeff Pike says the idea is to build more than just a hospital.

“A campus of care, which involves a seamless and patient centred experience for patients from home, right through their experience of illness in the hospital system and the healthcare campus and back to home again.”
