Langley Memorial Hospital’s new Emergency Department increases access to important emergency care.

People living in Langley will soon have better access to emergency services as the construction of an expanded emergency department at Langley Memorial Hospital completes.

The expanded emergency department will increase patient treatment bays from 31 to 49. The number of trauma bays will increase from one to two. As well, it will include a separate pediatric waiting area for children, and a new entrance that separates walk-in patients from those who arrive by ambulance.

Emergency Department Expansion

Langley Memorial Hospital’s emergency department (ED) will expand to three times its current size and is designed to better support and care for patients and families who require emergency care.  

  • 49 new private treatment spaces from 31 
  • Waiting and treatment area specifically designed for children and families 
  • Specialized mental health and substance use waiting and treatment area
  • Redesigned emergency entrance and waiting area
  • Separate ambulance entrance

New Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Suite

The new MRI Suite at Langley Memorial Hospital will bring the right care closer to home for residents and will eliminate the need to travel outside of the community for these critical diagnostic exams.  

  • First-ever MRI for Langley Memorial Hospital
  • Up to 7,500 exams annually 
  • Reduces wait times and need to travel for patients

A new dedicated, separate treatment area has been built for patients with mental health and substance use needs. To minimize the risk of infection, additional handwashing stations, utility rooms, a decontamination area and an isolation room are being added.
