Selkirk Regional Health Centre

Like any city that is reaching a new level of livability, Selkirk, Manitoba has grown to need significant health services and facilities for local residents and those living in the region. The new two-storey, state-of-the-art, LEED Gold, Selkirk Regional Health Centre is a 184,000 square foot regional healthcare hub, offering everything from a birthing centre, dialysis, surgery, cancer care, MRI diagnostics and outpatient programs, serving the Interlake Region.

The Centre features an interior contemplation courtyard with a light sculpture, three accessible roof terraces; and a green roof overlooked from patient bedrooms. The landscape and building connect seamlessly through an active, south facing, family/staff courtyard with a sun deck and outdoor ‘kitchen’.

With a focus on having as much natural light as possible in the building, glazed curtain walls are located in all public areas, starting at the front entrance and completely surrounding the contemplation courtyard as a ‘light well’ wayfinding feature.

The colours and finishes of the building echo the water, sky and earth of the Interlake. Shades of aqua and warm terra cotta, balance the golden buff Tyndall stone on the walls and floors. The first and last impression at every threshold on the site and in the building is that this is much more than a ‘hospital’ – it is a sustainable, holistic wellness centre.
