A new hospital is being built in North Cowichan, and will be located at 6775 Bell McKinnon Road. Excavation and construction begins in 2023, with the anticipated opening for patient care in 2027.

April 2023: Construction noise notice


The new Cowichan District Hospital construction project will see an increase in activity over the next few weeks. This includes a long day concrete pour planned for April 21 between 5:00am and midnight. Nearby residents and area road users will notice an increase in trucks and noise.


Council has directed that staff use their discretion to enforce noise infractions and to allow for construction to proceed outside of the regular construction hours, when necessary, until the project is completed.


Bell McKinnon Road will remain open, but intermittent traffic delays may occur as concrete trucks access the site. Please follow all traffic signage and construction personnel directives.
