The International Federation of Healthcare Engineering (IFHE) recently honoured the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital (pictured, above) with its annual International Building Award, which recognizes the work of design and construction professionals.

IFHE and the Canadian Healthcare Engineering Society (CHES) presented the award on Sept. 19 to Alberta Health Services representatives and Adrian Lo, partner at Dialog, which provided electrical, mechanical and structural engineering, interior design and architectural services for the project. The award ceremony was part of the 27th IFHE Congress and 2022 CHES National Conference, at Toronto’s Westin Harbour Castle.

The 240-bed hospital, completed in 2020, sits on a 30-acre site in Grand Prairie, Alta., and provides outpatient ambulatory care, emergency, diagnostics, obstetrics, surgery, pediatrics, acute geriatrics, mental health and intensive care services. Among other design features, its layout allows for deep daylight penetration into all care and treatment rooms (pictured, below).
