Description

This project involved the construction of a 400,000 sq. ft. facility on the hospital’s Grenville Street site in downtown Toronto.  The redeveloped Women’s College Hospital replaced all existing buildings and consolidated most hospital services in one location, enhancing the hospital’s stature as a leader in women’s health care, research and education.

Health-care benefits from the Women’s College Hospital capital redevelopment project include:

  • consolidation of primary care, chronic disease management, surgical services, diagnostics and mental health programs, all delivered on an ambulatory basis;
  • a rapid diagnostic model for women’s health and improved medical and diagnostic imaging services in an ambulatory setting;
  • comprehensive services in breast, thyroid and skin cancers;
  • development of an Academic Ambulatory Surgical Centre;
  • expanded research units to facilitate women’s health research;
  • co-location of research, education and patient care spaces to create stronger links between researchers, educators and clinicians; and
  • improved patient experience with more privacy and effective movement of people.

The hospital continued operations throughout the construction period utlilizing a multi-phase approach to the project.

The construction project provided a sizeable stimulus to the regional and Ontario economies by directly and indirectly creating and supporting thousands of jobs.  Labour was drawn largely from the Greater Toronto Area.
