Vancouver General Hospital


This Morning, I went to the Vancuver General Hospital with my friend Scott. He was there for a finger surgery (Broken back in March Mountain Biking) I was really surprise of the nice and renewed building...OH no I though here I go again had no Camera, but off course had my Phone ....save my blog again.

Here some facts of the Hospital it self.

When it opened in 1886, Vancouver Hospital was just a nine-bed tent used to treat injured railway workers. Vancouver Hospital is composed of four sites: Vancouver General Hospital, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre and George Pearson Centre. Now VHHSC is one of North America's leading health care centres with 1,900 beds. And treats nearly 116,000 patients each year.

It doesn't look like your normal hospital.

Great perspective shots of the building.

The architecture is very surprising for an hospital, but quite interesting!

I did not know a cell phone would take such great shots. Never think of it when I see something that needs to be captured.

Love the architecture! I really appreciate it when hospitals are designed with interesting architecture, after all, most of us visit a hospital at least once in our lives, and some of us have to spend quite a bit of time there.... nice to be in a pleasant place of airiness and light.
