Bayers Lake Community Outpatient Centre



Faced with replacing aging infrastructure and expanding existing facilities, the new Bayers Lake Community Outpatient Centre serves Nova Scotians at a more accessible patient-practitioner scale.

Located 20 minutes west of the Halifax peninsula, it offers services outside of a hospital setting like physiotherapy and occupational therapy, diagnostic imaging, blood collection, dialysis, and post-surgery primary care.

The centre is the province’s first P3 healthcare project and one element of the broader QEII New Generation Project—a large-scale, phased, multi-year program that will redesign and rebuild healthcare infrastructure support for Nova Scotians.

The design incorporates innovative and sustainable features, including extensive natural light, views of nature, and aims for a LEED Healthcare rating, all of which complement the facility's focus on wellness and inclusion. It recognizes the diversity of its staff and patients and features regional vernacular in an accessible and approachable setting.

FBM joins EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare alongside Parkin Architects to design this 134,000-sqft-facility, the first building comprising the largest healthcare project in the province’s history. The facility is scheduled for completion in August 2023.
