The new Comox Valley hospital will be located at 101 Lerwick Road (near the intersection of Lerwick and Ryan roads in Courtenay), next to North Island College, within the traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation.
This location was selected in consultation with local and regional governments, and with North Island College because:
- It’s near the centre of the population base;
- It’s located on high volume arterial roads to maximize access and fit within current and projected road capacity in the Comox Valley;
- It has an excellent geotechnical base with no seismic risks;
- The site is close to the future fire hall, and well serviced by utilities, thereby reducing costs;
- Strategic partnerships with North Island College are possible.
