Vancouver General Hospital Electrophysiology Lab Renovation & CT Scan Move

Thinkspace has been retained by Vancouver Coastal Health for the design and construction of the Electrophysiology Lab Renovation and CT Scan Move. The existing Electrophysiology (EP) Lab, located within the Cardiac Services Department of the Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), has reached capacity. A fourth lab, used to perform Electrophysiology and other procedures, will be constructed on the Ground Floor of the Cardiac Services Department to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders and provision of arrhythmia therapeutics. The redesign will include upgrades and modifications to the High Acuity Unit (HAU) stretcher area, expansion of the Clean Supply Room, expansion of administrative areas to improve flow, and relocation of the CT Scanner. The project is targeted for February 2020 completion.

The Vancouver Sun Run

As part of our work, we strive to continuously build relationships with the communities that surround us. The Vancouver Sun Run provides the perfect opportunity for our team members to get absorbed in the city, as well as help promote our work culture through setting and overcoming personal challenges. We spend a lot of time at work together and the Sun Run allows us to have fun together outside of work. 2016 was our first year entering a team in the Sun Run and we had 20 out of 28 staff participate. This year our team is expected to have over 25 staff and family members participate, and we are working together to raise funds for an amazing charity, the Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon (RMH BC).
