The City of Surrey is growing rapidly and will soon become the largest city in the province of B.C. The hospital has recently gone under a significant expansion, including a new $40 million Clinical Academic Campus of the UBC Faculty of Medicine in addition to a brand new Emergency Department with designated Paediatric Emergency Section as well as a Mental Health and Substance Use Section.
SMH offers a range of psychiatric services, including inpatient, outpatient, consult-liaison, reproductive psychiatry, and group therapy.
