As a result of the many individuals, corporations and foundations that have invested in The Campaign for Women’s College Hospital, we are now well on our way to achieving our $70 million goal. More than 50% of our goal has been committed — an incredible achievement that we celebrate with our entire community.
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.
Women’s College Hospital and the University of Toronto have developed a better way to help patients with chronic conditions take control of their symptoms, while also teaching the health-care professionals of tomorrow the practice of ambulatory care. In the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education (CACE) Complex Care Clinic, patients receive one-stop, coordinated care from a team of specialists and residents.
From a ground-breaking breast reconstruction surgical approach to pain management that begins even before surgery is underway, Women’s College Hospital is pioneering new ways of getting patients home safely and comfortably within 18 hours. Our work is challenging the traditional concepts of what can be accomplished in ‘day surgery’ and is influencing health-care practice across Canada and beyond.
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.
With studies underway in more than 30 countries and publications in the world’s major medical journals, Women’s College Hospital is leading the world in research about women’s health and health system solutions. We are the niche hospital that creates innovative health-care models, and then publishes and evaluates them for the benefit of health-care systems around the world.
