Scope and content
The series consists of records created between 1949 and 1995 by the Facilities Planning and Construction division of the Ministry of Health, and its successor divisions, the Design and Construction division and the Facilities Construction division. The majority of the records date to the 1980s and 1990s. The series consists of meeting minutes, requests for proposal, agendas, contract documents, change orders, financing approvals, and planning reports for the construction and alteration of hospitals and health care facilities across the province in accordance with the Hospital Act (RSBC 1996, c . 200), Hospital District Finance Act (RSBC 1996, c. 203) and the Building Safety Standards Act (RSBC 1996, c. 42).. The records document all aspects of health facility planning, construction, and renovation across the province. Some early files include complete inventories of ward equipment and many files contain long-range plans for health care facility development.
The series is covered by ORCS 50700-20. Files are arranged alphabetically by location within each accrual. Due to the fact that records arrived at the Archives in multiple accruals, files relating to a single facility or project can be found throughout the accession in several different boxes .
Major accrual groupings are :
Boxes 0001 to 0030
Boxes 0031 to 0040
Boxes 0041 to 0043
Boxes 0044 to 0060
Boxes 0061 to 0085
Boxes 0086 to 0122
Boxes 0123 to 0125
Boxes 0125 to 0156
Boxes 0157 to 0166
Boxes 0167 to 0172
Boxes 0175 to 0186
Boxes 0251 to 0257
Immediate source of acquisition
The file codes for files in boxes 176 to 179 relate to British Columbia Buildings Corporation project numbers.
The contents of the Pouce Coupe, Powell River, Prince George and Prince Rupert files in box 254 were largely loose in the box. The archivist was able to refile the majority of the contents in the proper folder, but it was difficult to determine whether some equipment condition sheets came from Powell River or Prince George. These have been placed in a file with the supplied title of Prince George as this seemed most likely.
