Nanaimo Hospital


The Nanaimo Hospital building represents the City's complex history of medical services and speaks to the ongoing challenge of providing adequate facilities for an ever-expanding population. The first hospital was opened in 1877 in a row of miners' cabins. In 1881, a large new purpose-built hospital was opened on this site. Continued population growth dictated the construction of this new building in 1925. Construction was delayed by lack of finances and it was not officially opened until three years later. The north wing, although part of the original design, was not completed until 1942 because of funding problems. In 1962, a new hospital was opened at another site. The Nanaimo Hospital Building has since been adapted for other uses.
