The West Park Healthcare Centre is a new 730,000-sq.-ft hospital that will replace the existing facility.
The new hospital will feature:
314 beds, with 80 per cent of beds in single-patient rooms;
Three-piece private washroom for each patient, even in double occupancy rooms;
Significant increase in outpatient care space to accommodate current and new services such as geriatric clinics and day hospital, and satellite hemodialysis;
Demolition of three existing hospital buildings—Main, Ruddy, and Gage—as well as the existing maintenance buildings;
New campus entrance with new public and private roads within the campus; and
Increased green space, landscaping for outdoor therapy, therapeutic gardens, walking paths and courtyards, plus terraces on every floor.
The excavation phase will begin in early 2020. The project is to be completed in early 2023.
