As the first city in Western Canada (west of the Great Lakes) and the original capital of British Columbia, New Westminster has a rich history. This rich history is  evident in the sights and sounds of the city — today, many government, education, commerce and medical institutions still call New West home.

One great example  is the Royal Columbian Hospital. What started as modest wood-frame building at Agnes and 4th is now one of the top employers in the Royal City. RCH and its large trauma centre help one out of every five patients in B.C., making it one of the most important institutions in the region.

This year, RCH is celebrating its 150th anniversary, a big milestone for an important New West institution.
