WCN Editorial Team 21 Dec 2021 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Canadian design firm Stantec has been appointed as prime consultant to design the new Queensway Health Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Under the contract, the company will be responsible for the architectural, interior design, and building and civil engineering services for the new nine-storey patient tower.

The 600,000ft2 hospital building, which is part of Trillium Health Partners (THP), will address the growing community needs as well as the aging infrastructure.

The ground floor of the new hospital building will have public entrances with check-in services, administration support, waiting areas, and retail amenities.

The patient tower will feature landscaped outdoor spaces as well as two courtyards.

Upon completion, the expansion will provide more than 350 beds in a modern centre for services related to complex care and rehabilitation.

A pedestrian corridor will connect the new hospital tower and the existing hospital.

Stantec project principal George Bitsakakis said: “In designing Queensway Health Centre, our team is embracing THP’s values of Compassion, Excellence, and Courage to create a dynamic, welcoming, and sustainable facility for the community.

“We believe that facility design plays a vital role in optimizing patient care and clinical services while creating positive spaces for patients, staff, and the neighbouring community.

“We’re excited to continue our work with THP to support the health and well-being of the community.”

The company is also designing minor renovations to the existing Trillium Health Partners hospital as part of the Queensway project.

Additionally, it is providing planning, design, and conformance services for the new Mississauga Hospital project of THP.

This hospital expansion will improve access to specialised health services and increase the bed capacity.
