Expedited Surgical Facilities Services

When people have an injury at work and need elective, day-care procedures, we may refer them to our network of Expedited Surgical Facilities Services providers. This network is made up of providers who have long-term contracts with us. These contracts come up for bidding periodically.

Overview of services

Under our Expedited Surgical Facilities Services program, surgeons perform expedited, elective, day-care surgical procedures on injured workers. These services include nursing and support staff, medications, supplies, and equipment.

The surgical facilities must be accredited as a Class 1 non-hospital medical/surgical facility by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C.

We post notifications on Bid Opportunities when contracts are up for bidding. All the information you need, including how to submit your bid, will be available in the posted documents.

Through Bid Opportunities, you can also sign up for automatic notifications whenever one of these bid opportunities is posted.
