Vercity provides the management service agreement (MSA) to the project, with a strong focus on contract compliance to ensure the facilities management provider delivers their contractual obligations.
In working around the needs of patients, staff and shareholders, we create tailored strategies, to ensure ARHCC meets all its contractual obligations and achieves positive outcomes. We identify where value can be added in the facility and where investment is required to improve contract performance. Our services include general management, helpdesk operation, managing retail and catering, housekeeping, material management, utilities management and protection services.
Our award-winning collaborative working creates a positive impact for the public sector while maintaining investor returns. By implementing effective processes and procedures, we help optimise ARHCC’s financial returns and influence effective decision making. We take the time to understand asset costs and analyse budgets, so the client benefits from cost consistency over the long-term.
Our in-depth understanding of ARHCC’s contract obligations ensure that its non-clinical support services continue to add value to the hospital. By adapting to the challenges in this ever-evolving sector, we ensure that operations continue uninterrupted. The concession end date for the contract is May 2038 and AHA Access Health Abbotsford will continue to provide these services for the duration of the 30-year long contract signed with ARHCC.

Environmental Social Governance
Vercity was involved in the Abbotsford Breast Health Clinic initiative, which has been treating patients since September 2015. The clinic space was donated by the Project Company to the Health Authority for use by the Abbotsford Breast Health Centre. The idea for the clinic was triggered when the Project Company learned that the existing clinic was being relocated off site. As this program contributes significantly to the community, it was felt by ARHCC that it had to remain on site. ARHCC therefore bestowed a gift of 2000 sqft of space for use by the Breast Health Clinic. The gift has an equivalent value of $1.8 million in foregone revenue. To date, the facility has treated 17,600 patients.
