Connected Care for Nova Scotians

Health care needs are evolving and redevelopment projects in Nova Scotia’s two largest centres present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rethink and rebuild the way we deliver health care.

The plans are focused on making our health care system stronger to ensure the needs of Nova Scotians remain at the heart of everything we do. Together, these projects will help support the
health care of all Nova Scotians today, and for future generations.

There will be opportunities for the public to stay informed and engaged in these exciting projects.

QEII New Generation

Improving care with better spaces and better technology. The Victoria and Centennial buildings are aging. By moving care and services to new, modern facilities, the QEII Health Sciences Centre will continue to provide top quality advanced health care to all Nova Scotians, as well as immediate outpatient care and emergency services to Halifax residents. Plans include extensive renovations at several hospitals, a modern cancer centre, and new outpatient centres.
