Major Rebuild of West Park Healthcare Centre


West Park Healthcare Centre

Toronto's West Park Healthcare Centre, which provides long-term rehabilitative care after a life-altering illness or injury, including stroke, is moving forward with a major rebuild. An article on urbantoronto.ca explains that: 

"The development project will include a new, approximately 730,000 square foot, six-storey hospital building. According to the EllisDon press release, the new building will provide "various inpatient, outpatient, and outreach services. Outpatient care space will be significantly increased to accommodate current and new services such as geriatric clinics and day hospital, and satellite hemodialysis. Eighty per cent of the beds will be in single-patient rooms.

Sustainable features and elements such as expansion of green space and extensive landscaping for outdoor therapy areas and therapeutic gardens will also be incorporated into the design. The project will target Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification."
