Humber River Hospital Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Humber River Hospital is one of Canada's largest regional acute care hospitals, serving a catchment area of more than 850,000 people in the northwest GTA. Affiliated with the University of Toronto, the hospital is home to Ontario's first Centre of Excellence for laparoscopic bariatric surgery; Canada's first home nocturnal dialysis program and a major cancer program.
The new, fully digital hospital project provides, both in-patient and out-patient care, including cancer, cardiac and critical care, emergency services, dialysis, bariatric surgical services, women's and children services, diabetes and mental health programs.
The project encompassed a 14-storey tower, a separate central utility plant and 2,000 parking spaces in two parking structures and some surface parking. The new 1.7 million ft2 facility will operate 656 beds in 2015/2016, with capacity to expand to 722 beds by 2025/2026.
In addition to the construction of the new facility, key risks associated with the maintenance responsibility of the hospital over the 30-year service period were transferred to Plenary Health Care Partnerships.
