Stantec has been selected to design the new Queensway Health Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The project is part of Trillium Health Partners (THP).

The nine-story, 600,000-sf patient tower will address the needs of the growing community and aging infrastructure. When complete, the expansion will provide over 350 beds in a modern, dedicated center for complex care and rehabilitation services. It will connect to the existing hospital complex via a pedestrian corridor.

Queensway Health Centre courtyard

The building’s design creates a healing environment with access to daylight and views supporting patients and their families while offering intuitive wayfinding that minimizes patient travel within the facility. The tower will define the northern edge of the Queensway campus, with the primary hospital building clearly visible from the north and northwest entrances.

With H-shaped floor plates that reflect the use and clinical functionality of the building, the new tower rises up nine stories and provides a landmark for the community. On the ground floor, public entrances will greet patients, families, and their visitors with check-in services, waiting areas, administration support, and retail amenities.

Queensway Health Centre public lobby

Two courtyards, one open to the east and one to the west, will offer a place for respite and connection to nature. The east courtyard will be shared between the public and patients, with the north half providing a landscaped amenity that respects the privacy of patient bedrooms with a mix of low stone walls and planting. The south half is an open landscaped public space with a pedestrian entrance in the southeast public lobby area.

Stantec is providing architectural, interior design, and building and civil engineering services for the project.
