The fight against COVID-19 is far from over and DHCHF is currently fundraising for the changing needs at our hospital.
As part of the Fraser Health Authority, Delta Hospital is part of an integrated network of hospitals providing linked services with 11 other acute care sites within the authority. Delta Hospital serves a population of over 100,000 throughout North Delta, Ladner, and Tsawwassen.
Delta Hospital is a primary care, Level II community hospital. In other words, it provides first point of contact services to the community that helps diagnose, treat, and prevent disease, illness, and injury. As well as a Rapid Access Clinic that provides some specialized care, it has 58 acute care beds; in addition, Delta Hospital’s Mountain View Manor has 92 beds as a residential care unit. The hospital employs over 580 people to provide quality healthcare to the community.
The Emergency Room has ten acute beds, ten observation beds, three ambulance bays, plus two negative pressure rooms, two fast track chairs and a trauma room providing 24 hours, seven days a week service. The Surgical Daycare program has three operating rooms, 13 pre- and post- operation care beds, six post-anesthetic recovery bays, and a dedicated two room endoscopy suite
In 2011 a ‘Master Concept Plan’ was completed looking at a 20 year vision for the hospital. The plan looked at the hospital’s current and future needs and opportunities for the building and the hospital’s grounds. This plan will guide the decisions for investment and improvements to the facilities and medical growth. The plan has laid out three major timelines for the hospital: short term (0-5 years), medium term (6-15 years) and long term (20+ years).
The first priority in the Master Concept Plan was the expansion of the diagnostic services program on site. The Peter C. and Elizabeth Toigo Diagnostic Services Building, a two-storey addition to Delta Hospital, opened in March 2020 and is expanding medical imaging and laboratory services in the community, bringing care closer to home and with shorter wait times for patients.
The building features state-of-the-art equipment and provides more space for patients and staff. The addition, built near the hospital’s main entrance, is approximately 800 square metres, about 2.5 times larger than the previous space at Delta Hospital. The building provides services that include mammography, ultrasound, X-ray and CT scanning, and is designed to accommodate future services.
