Welcome to the Future of Surgery

If you or a loved one needs surgery, you don’t want to worry. You need high quality care, followed by a swift and complete recovery.

Vancouver General Hospital and UBC Hospital are the cornerstones of surgical excellence in British Columbia. Whether we are dealing with tumours, traumas, or transplants, we are often the only place that can help.

In 2016, we launched the Future of Surgery, a $60 million campaign to transform surgical care in BC. Thanks to the generosity of thousands of donors, we have reached our fundraising goal.

Donations have already made a significant impact on patient care. The Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Surgical Centre at VGH is on track to open in early 2021. Construction is currently underway for the 16 new operating rooms, as well as pre and post-operative care on the 3rd floor of the Jim Pattison Pavilion. At UBC Hospital, the Future of Surgery campaign has transformed patient units and services supporting scheduled surgeries to meet our targets for reduced wait times. See our progress updates below.

Thoughtful Planning for the Future

Years of careful planning have gone in to the development of the Future of Surgery. Leaders from across our community and health care system were brought together with patients and frontline health care providers to develop a plan that will result in an efficient, effective, state-of-the art surgical program.

Two Locations: A Better Patient Experience

At UBC Hospital investments have increased its capacity for higher acuity patients and more complex procedures.

As part of the OR renewal project, UBC Hospital has opened new and improved in-patient units, designed to support patient-centered care, including a new high acuity unit to support more complex scheduled surgical cases and sicker patients.

These improvements will allow more scheduled surgeries to be moved to UBC Hospital, allowing VGH to focus on emergency and trauma surgeries.

This will result in fewer cancellations and will reduce patient wait times for non-urgent procedures.

16 New Standardized Operating Rooms: Increasing Efficiency

VGH’s current operating rooms were designed in 1979. Health care has evolved since then, and just like you wouldn’t want to use a 40-year-old cordless phone, these ORs simply weren’t designed for today’s technology and standard of care.

16 new optimally sized operating rooms are being built, each containing:

  • State-of-the-art surgical equipment to support minimally invasive technology, wireless technology, electronic health records and digital X-ray equipment.
  • High ceilings to mount lights, monitors and three articulating booms, increasing available floor space to improve flow and reduce clutter.
  • A shared sterile core between procedural zones to maximize efficiencies for cleaning instruments and reducing turnover times.
  • Common features so that each room can host any type of surgery, with extra space to accommodate additional equipment as needed.

In a future phase of development, additional space will be renovated to create a total of 30 operating rooms: a 30% increase.

Better Pre- and Post-operative Care

Renovations will include a new 40-bed perioperative care unit. This will combine pre-op and post-op recovery areas for more efficient care and a better patient experience to aid recovery.

Ritchie’s Spinal Surgery Recovery

Kristen Stahl & Ritchie Biln with their daughter Mia

“I remember being on the mountain just screaming. All I could do was scream. That’s how bad the pain was.”

Lying in the snow after a snowmobile accident, Ritchie didn’t know if we would ever walk again.

He was rushed to VGH and underwent a five hour spinal surgery to save his life – and mobility.

The Future of Surgery is...

Preparing for what’s ahead.

Providing patients with the care they need takes planning, expertise and investment. A $145 million transformation of the surgical facilities at VGH and UBC Hospital is under way. And while Vancouver Coastal Health and the provincial government are funding the majority of the costs, our Future of Surgery campaign has raised $60 million.

2016

November 2016: Hybrid OR opens

The new hybrid operating room at VGH brings imagery equipment right into the operating room, allowing surgeons to order additional imagery in the middle of surgery, reducing the need to transport patients in and out of radiology. This optimizes surgical procedure times and patient safety.

2017

Spring 2017 – Spring 2018: Staff planning sessions for new operating room layouts

VGH OR physicians, nurses, and pre and post op staff worked together through several dollhouse sessions to help design the layout of the new universal operating rooms.

By using scale models of the new rooms and 3D printed equipment, staff collaborated on possible layouts.

Surgical nurses proved especially insightful, as they set up operating rooms, and unlike surgeons, they move throughout the room during surgeries.

Following the dollhouse sessions, life-size mock-up sessions were held where physicians and staff put their recommendations to the test to determine whether they can work safely and efficiently in a wide range of surgical scenarios.

Summer 2017: Spiritual Care Space and Leon Judah Blackmore Centre for Sleep Disorders open at UBC Hospital

The completion of both of these spaces marked phase one of the UBC Hospital redevelopment, creating additional space to be utilized in phase two.

UBC Hospital’s new Sacred Space offers a safe, serene and welcoming place for anyone seeking peace of mind and spiritual healing.

The new space is readily accessible for all within steps of the front entrance. Natural light fills the room through floor-to-ceiling windows with a garden view.

Specially designed for spiritual care, the larger space also features enhanced ventilation to accommodate ceremonies involving incense and smudging.

The Leon Judah Blackmore Centre for Sleep Disorders includes nine patient beds that can be used day or night, allowing for 24-hour use. With dedicated rooms for patients care and research, the work that goes on here will be providing people with a key aspect of a healthy life – a good night’s sleep.

“This expanded facility will allow us to see more patients with complex sleep disorders that require accurate diagnosis and treatment,” says Dr. John Fleetham, Medical Co-director of the UBC Hospital Sleep Disorders Program. “We will be able to improve the lives of British Columbians. Good sleep, in addition to good diet and exercise, are the fundamentals to good health. Poor sleep and sleep disorders lead to an impaired quality of life and reduced life expectancy.”

2018

Fall 2018: Demolition Begins at VGH as Part of the OR Renewal Project

Demolition began in Fall 2018 to prepare for the OR renewal project at VGH. Part of the planning process included ensuring minimal patient disruption during this potentially noisy time.

October 2018: CAMU opens at UBC Hospital

The Complex Activation Medical Unit (CAMU) cares for patients recovering from conditions that require extra support. These patients benefit from an in-patient unit that includes both medical and rehabilitation therapy support to enhance recovery and allow them to safely return home or to community care.

2019

Spring 2019: Construction begins for VGH OR Renewal

Building 16 new ORs, a 40-bed perioperative care unit, and supporting infrastructure is a big job. Construction has been carefully planned to have minimum impact on current surgeries and patient care.

January 2020: Prototype OR Completed

In January, VCH surgical staff were able to tour the first completed OR. This fully-equipped prototype provided the opportunity to make further recommendations to ensure an optimized and universal layout for each room. This improved workflow will create faster turn-around times between surgeries and safer spaces for both staff and patients.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

A physician-led environmental initiative will reduce the carbon footprint of surgeries by implementing a system to re-capture anesthetic gas, reducing the surgical programs carbon footprint.

July 2020: Perioperative Care Unit construction complete

The new Perioperative  Care Unit (PCU) will have 40 universal, pre and post-operative patient bays including a negative pressure isolation room. Walls with sliding doors featuring e-glass instead of curtains between bays provide improved infection control, acoustics and patient privacy.

Watch the tour of the new space.

Construction continues on the third floor under the latest COVID-19 guidelines.

March 2021: Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Surgical Centre will Open

Years of planning and support from donors like you will come to full fruition when VGH opens all 16 new operating rooms and a 40-bed perioperative care unit, newly named the Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Surgical Centre. This exciting milestone will mark the completing of Phase 1 of the OR Renewal Project.

2021 and Beyond: Future Phase of Development

Renovations of existing ORs will create a total of 30 state-of-the-art ORs: a 30% increase.

The Gaglardi Family

The Gaglardi family have donated $25 million, $15 million of which will catalyze the Future of Surgery and $10 million to support future surgical needs.

To honour the significant impact of this gift, the surgical centre at VGH will be named the Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Surgical Centre.

“My parents, Phil and Jennie, dedicated their lives to the service of others,” says Bob Gaglardi. “They had a passion for what they did, and were selfless in carrying out their desire to help people.”

The Gaglardi family’s gift is a testament to the way in which Phil and Jennie lived their lives and will improve access to specialized surgical care and health outcomes for thousands of British Columbians every year.

Leon Judah Blackmore

Local philanthropist Leon Judah Blackmore loved life.

The appreciation for life and community he acquired throughout his 81 years extended after his passing in 2015 with a gift of $18.4 million to VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. The donation amount is not a random figure. Eighteen, in Hebrew, means ‘chai’ or ‘life’ and that symbolism represents the fervent lust for life that Leon had every day.

$4.47 million of the total gift supported the Hybrid OR, and another $2.2 million was used to renovate what is now called the Leon Judah Blackmore Centre for Sleep Disorders at UBC Hospital.

Time to Shine Gala Committee

The Time to Shine gala has been dedicated to raising funds for the Future of Surgery since 2016. In that time the annual event has raised over $9 million, with a goal to raise another $3 million in February 2019.

The success of the gala would not be possible without the commitment of the incredible volunteer gala committee.

“In order to truly make a difference and to really take us to world-class health care we all have to contribute,” says Judy Leung, current Committee Chair. “Health care is everyone’s responsibility.”
