Stanton Territorial Hospital

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories

Project Description

This impressive five-year project was constructed as part of the Boreal Health Partnership and replaced the aging hospital originally built in 1985. The existing site presented significant challenges, in addition to adding time-consuming construction precautions and delays. With many stakeholders involved and respecting the needs of the local Indigenous community along with many other groups in Yellowknife and the surrounding regions of the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut required careful balance. 

The new hospital almost doubled the size of the original, offering extensive inpatient, acute-care, and support services, including biomedical and IT. 

As an integral part of the fully integrated team, Clark Builders played an active role, including self-performing work, shared Project Management and Supervision, and leadership of the Commissioning Phase. The project's success was also due to key personnel and proven processes from our partner Turner Construction, contributing to successful planning, execution of work, and smooth project close-out. 

The impressive facility boasts 110 inpatient beds in single occupancy patient rooms, three state-of-the-art operating rooms, six dialysis stations, biomass boilers with dual fuel back-up boilers, and 30 percent spare capacity on selected major mechanical and electrical systems. The hospital also contains an in-house church with smudging capabilities, allowing for Indigenous ceremonies to be performed.

A truly unique facility that reflects the community and will service those in need for years to come.
