award-winning, world-class facilities

Design, construction, funding and comprehensive management of the facilities; cleaning services, waste collection and management, disinfection and pest control, and help desk.

With its world-class facilities worth CAD 250 million, the award-winning, Royal Jubilee Hospital is the latest addition to the Vancouver Island Health Authority campus in Victoria (British Columbia).


The hospital consists of a 42,000 m2 facility, with capacity for 500 beds, mainly single rooms with private bathrooms.

Its LEED Gold certification and elder-friendly design are just some of the sustainable construction practices that have been implemented.


Since 2011, ACCIONA has been performing cleaning, waste collection and management, disinfection and pest control and help desk services throughout the entire Royal Jubilee hospital campus in Victoria, with an area of more than 100,000 m2 split across 14 buildings and a total of 285 beds.


Thanks to ACCIONA's commitment to innovation and continuous improvement, the contract has been renewed by the Island Health Authority for another five years, until December 2021.

Main features

The concession includes the construction and subsequent operation of an eight-storey hospital facility with a constructed area of 37,000 m2. The building has 500 beds, and 83 % of its rooms are private. It will serve medical-surgical and mental health patients.

The hospital was designed with future generations in mind, with the ability to be adapted to future needs (new methods and treatments).

Here, ACCIONA has won its first international contract.

The design is based on the following principles:

  • Keeping elderly patients in mind: large rooms that are comfortable for both the patient and their loved ones; natural light, fresh air and noise reduction; and a mechanical mobility system that guarantees patient autonomy.
  • Respect for the environment: 40 % more energy efficient than any other hospital in the region.
  • Creation of the best workplace possible: the design allows for each patient to be monitored from the nursing station; more than 1,400 wash basins, including one in each room; and a gymnasium for staff and spacious relaxation areas.
