This project involves the construction of a new seven-storey tower at Joseph Brant Hospital and a significant renovation in other areas of the hospital to give patients faster access to the right care. Through this expansion, patients will benefit from space for 172 additional beds in the new tower; additional beds in the intensive care unit; a modern emergency department; expanded diagnostic imaging services, which will provide capacity for an additional 23,745 exams per year; nine modern operating rooms and a post-anaesthetic care unit; an expanded cancer clinic; expanded ambulatory care programs; an expanded and modernized laboratory; and a renovated special care nursery.
Construction of the new patient tower is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2017, with renovations to the existing hospital to be completed in the fall of 2018.
