The city of Surrey is one of the fastest-growing municipalities in Fraser Health, with a current population of over 500,000 residents.

Surrey is gaining a brand new hospital and cancer centre, centrally located in Cloverdale, to support the growing health care needs of the community.

The new Surrey hospital and BC Cancer Centre is part of Fraser Health's commitment across the region to modernize our health care network and enable patient-centred care through innovative design, integrated technology and increased access to care for patients and families, closer to home.
