West Park Healthcare Centre has broken ground on a massive new hospital construction project in Toronto.
The $1.2-billion project will include a new six-storey hospital overlooking the Humber River Valley. The hospital, scheduled to open in 2023, will feature 80 per cent of the beds in single-patient rooms, with each inpatient having a private three-piece washroom for improved infection control. The campus will be built on 27 acres.
West Park Foundation has launched the $80-million Get Your Life Back Campaign to raise funds for the new hospital. Phase 1 of the campaign will raise $50 million by 2023, with the foundation providing an additional $30 million in support to the new hospital over the next 30 years.
EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare has been awarded a fixed-price contract to design, build, finance and maintain the new hospital.
