Plans conceived for new birthing centre at St. Paul's Hospital
St. Paul's Hospital is conceiving a plan to build what could be B.C.'s first non-hospital birthing centre.
The centre would be in a separate building adjacent to the new $1.2-billion hospital. Construction of the new hospital on the False Creek Flats is not expected to be completed for about seven years.
Babies born in the centre would be delivered by midwives or primary care doctors.
