Renovations at Whitehorse General Hospital

New Outpatient Laboratory Services area at Whitehorse General Hospital.

Exciting new renovations are beginning at the Whitehorse General Hospital (WGH) in March with initial construction focusing on:

  • A new Laboratory Outpatient Services area in the old Admitting and Discharge location.
  • An Operating Room Hub in the old Emergency Department.

These changes continue the evolution of WGH facilities and services while also filling vacated spaces following the opening of the new Emergency Department. It’s all a part of our continued mission of providing safe and excellent hospital care.

The focus of renovated areas will be on enhancing patient privacy and safety (including infection control), creating more efficient work spaces and improving patients' overall experience while receiving hospital services.

Onsite construction barriers and notices will be present throughout the renovations, and regular community updates will be posted on our website. Thank you for your patience during these important renovations. 

Please let us know how we are doing! Feedback is always important, especially during times of change. Please contact us at
