The new Haida Gwaii Hospital and Health Centre – Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay is officially open.
The hospital provides more resources for maternity care and long term beds.
It also provides more space for when loved ones are visiting patients.
Mayor of the Village of Queen Charlotte, Greg Martin says it’s great news for all of Haida Gwaii especially being away from the mainland.
Mayor Martin says it’s great that many communities and governments were able to come together to make this happen.
The project was worth $50 million with the cost being split between the province and North West Regional Hospital District.
The old facility is now closed and it’s expected to be demolished in the new few weeks.
