Partnerships BC has issued a request for qualifications for a hospital project in north-central British Columbia.

The Stuart Lake Hospital Redevelopment Project includes the construction of a new hospital in Fort St. James, northwest of Prince George, as well as the demolition of an existing facility.

Early design plans for new hospital show nine in-patient acute beds and 18 long-term care beds. Emergency care, medical imaging and laboratory space are also included. Along with the demolition and building construction, the winning build team will be responsible for a new parking lot and landscaping.

The new health care site will serve the Fort St. James area, which includes several First Nations communities.

The crown corporation said the project is expected to cost $116 million.

The RFQ stage will run until mid-June, at which point the province will release a shortlist of bidders and issue an request for proposals.
