The New Adult Mental Health and Addictions Facility

JHA are collaborating with B+H Architects in the design of a new, state of the art mental health facility for Eastern Health. This new building is a massive upgrade from the former Waterford Hospital that was built in 1855. The project will see the construction of a 240,000 square foot, six-storey, 102-bed hospital; a parking garage with space for 1,000 vehicles; and a new 60-bed hostel to replace the Agnes Cowan Hostel. The estimated net present value of the new hospital contract is $330 million.

With a distinctive new architecture that is both unique and belonging to the HSC campus family, the Facility projects a proud public presence to combat stigma and normalize mental healthcare.
