General Hospital Development Plan fonds

  • CA NL0001 011
  • Fonds
  • 1969

In February 1968 a report entitled “St. John’s and the Avalon Peninsula - Future Integration of Hospital Services” was submitted to the Department of Health. Combined in this report, at the specific request of the minister, were recommendations for the future role of the St. John’s General Hospital in the region and for a phased upgrading of the hospital. The development plan in this collection is based on the recommendations in that Hospital Services Report, developed into necessary detail, and was completed by Llewellyn-Davies Weeks Forestier-Walker & Bor of London, England and Ottawa, Ontario in June 1969.

The need for a medical school and a university hospital located on campus had been firmly established at the time of this report, first by Lord Brain in the Royal Commission on Health Services in Newfoundland and Labrador, and later by the MacFarlane Commission. Subsequently, the proposal was further endorsed by a Planning Conference to which had been invited distinguished members of the medical professions from Canada, the UK and the USA. Despite the fact that planning and movement had begun on the new 400 bed University Hospital, it was clear that several years would elapse before the new facilities would become available. In the meantime, the General Hospital was intended to maintain essential services to the community and to continue its role in graduate medical education. Pending completion of the University Hospital, the “General”, as it was commonly known, was to participate in undergraduate clinical teaching with the likelihood of maintaining this participation, relative to its later role in the region, as an affiliated teaching hospital.

The report is divided into the following chapters:

Introduction

  1. The Consultants Terms of Reference
  2. The Future Functional Plan
  3. The Redevelopment Requirement
  4. The Existing Hospital
  5. Programme of Redevelopment
  6. Phasing
  7. Engineering
  8. Cost Estimates
