TACC Top Benefits

Why are we building the new Teck Acute Care Centre? Find out here!

Construction of the Teck Acute Care Centre (TACC) is part of a three-phase redevelopment project at BC Children’s Hospital and BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre. 

The project will ensure there will be sufficient capacity to meet the needs of a growing population and provide facilities that will support the future of health care in BC. 

But the TACC is more than just a building. It will have a significant impact on the way in which care is delivered to patients for years to come. Here are the most important benefits to patients, families and staff:


More Clinical Space
The TACC will have larger clinical spaces to better accommodate care teams, required equipment and technology.

Efficient Design
Departments are designed to have an efficient organization of rooms and spaces. This helps maximize the amount of time staff can spend with patients, which improves patient experiences and outcomes.

Private Patient Rooms
The TACC will feature 231 single, private inpatient rooms allowing a parent or family member to stay overnight and new moms and babies to stay together.

Patient & Family Amenities  
Patients and families will have access to kitchenettes, laundry facilities, family lounges, play areas, resource rooms and storage space.

Advanced Technology & Equipment    
Care providers will have better integrated technology and equipment to support the delivery of patient-centred care.

Healing Environment  
Access to natural light and more green spaces recognizes the benefits of natural surroundings for the health and well-being of patients  and staff.

Education, Training & Research 
The TACC will have integrated clinical spaces and resources to accommodate medical students, residents, nursing students and other health professional trainees.

The TACC will be constructed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, ensuring environmental, social and economic sustainability.

Public Art & Enhancements  
Reflecting a holistic approach to health care, public art and enhancements, like murals and interactive sculptures, will be incorporated within the building and on the hospital campus.
