The 450,000 square-foot Women’s College Hospital will not only deliver health-care better, faster, safer and more cost-effectively; it will also advance research into new models of care that can impact and benefit patients everywhere. The $70 million project is on schedule toward the opening of the first phase in 2013, and the second phase in 2015.
Our state-of-the-art glass and concrete building will also be a model for sustainable design and construction. Featuring green spaces, recycled construction content, re-purposed waste, a rooftop garden and 25% less energy consumption than most other hospitals, we are on track to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Founded more than 100 years ago by a group of women and led by the first Canadian female doctor licensed to practise in Canada, Women’s College Hospital continues to break ground, providing a unique array of programs at the intersection of women’s health, social justice and community medicine.
Patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease and arthritis account for 1.7 million days per year in acute care hospitals and a significant portion of health-care costs. Women’s College Hospital will offer patients a different type of care — programs focused on wellness, inspired by research and aimed at getting them back to their lives as quickly as possible.
Research at Women’s College Hospital has impact around the world. Our scientists’ uniquely international perspectives inform research and community-based work that’s solving health problems in our local community and beyond. Together, we’re building a better world for all women and girls.
We identify the problems that strain and undermine Ontario’s health system to inform targeted solutions for better managing illness and preventing health crises. By improving health-care access and delivery for Ontarians, we’re building models of care that can support health and well-being for all Canadians. It’s about delivering care that works, the first time.
