Chaleur Regional Hospital in Bathurst is currently undertaking an over $200M expansion that will add 250,000 square feet to the facility's existing 550,000 square feet. The project also includes, once the expansion has been completed, a major renovation of the existing hospital's care units. The commissioning of the new space includes all activities around planning the sequences of moves, purchasing new equipment, and preparing the clinical and support teams to operate within the new physical environment. With respect to the work to be carried out within the existing hospital, one of the major challenges will be to maintain services while the work is underway, and this will require a high level of risk management and communication skills. The expansion is scheduled to go into service in 2023, at which time the work will begin on the existing section for a minimum five-year period, meaning this major project will come to a close in 2028.

Vitalité Health Network is seeking a project coordinator who will report to the Manager of the Maintenance Department of the Chaleur Regional Hospital in Bathurst. The Project Coordinator will plan, organize, direct, coordinate and conduct follow-up for the preparation and commissioning required for the above project.
