The Summit at Quadra Village is a 320-unit complex residential and dementia care facility where residents will receive 24-hour care and support. The Summit will replace the aging Oak Bay Lodge (243 residents) and Mt. Tolmie Hospital (77 residents) facilities, two buildings no longer suitable for residential care.
The Summit will be a state-of-the-art residential and dementia care facility that will last for generations.
The Capital Region Hospital District (CRHD) has designed and is building the Summit on behalf of Island Health. The land and future building will be owned by the CRHD and Island Health will provide the residential care services upon completion of the project, which is anticipated in early 2019.
The CRHD acquired 955 Hillside Avenue, Victoria, BC (the former Blanshard School playing field) from School District No. 61 (Greater Victoria). The 3.5 acre property is zone for residential care.
Project design was completed last summer and construction began in fall of 2016.
Partnerships in Action
A corporation of the CRD, the Capital Regional Hospital District partners with Island Health and community stakeholder agencies to develop and improve healthcare facilities in the Region, including replacing buildings that have reached the end of their economic and functional life. The Mount View Heights CRD Community of Care development is another example of such partnering. Through capital and other community investments, the CRHD supports a healthy, vibrant and livable Regional for all citizens.
Island Health is responsible for the delivery of $1.9 billion in community, hospital and residential care to more than 750,000 people on Vancouver Island, the islands of the Salish Sea and Johnstone Strait, and in the mainland communities north of Powell River and south of Rivers Inlet.
