A new hospital in Ontario will nearly triple the care capacity of its existing facility—becoming the largest hospital in Canada.
In Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, hospital system Trillium Health Partners (THP) will fully replace its Mississauga Hospital with a new facility that will increase the number of operating rooms from 14 to 23 and include more than 950 beds. At approximately 2.8 million square feet and 24 floors, the new Mississauga Hospital will feature modern hospital facilities and technology and reflect the latest standards in infection prevention and control.
THP’s emergency department, one of the busiest in Canada, will significantly expand to improve patient experience and reduce wait times. The hospital will house advanced diagnostic imaging facilities and a new pharmacy and clinical laboratory. And it will continue to deliver specialized care through regional programs, such as the regional center for advanced cardiac surgery and neurosurgery services, among others.
With design and engineering services by global integrated design firm Stantec, the new Mississauga Hospital will be a critical part of THP’s plan to provide healthcare that serves the growing community for decades to come.
“Critical health infrastructure, like Trillium Health Partners’ Mississauga site, are essential to advance quality healthcare in Ontario and keep our diverse communities healthy,” Suzanne Crysdale, Stantec principal, says in a statement.
Mississauga Hospital marks the second Stantec project for THP. In December, Stantec announced it will provide design and engineering services for a nine-floor, 600,000-square-foot patient tower with over 350 beds.
In recent years, Stantec has designed several major healthcare projects in Ontario, including Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital’s 1.2 million-square-foot facility; Cambridge Memorial Hospital’s patient care wing; Brockville General Hospital’s complex for continuing care, mental health, and rehabilitation; and Centre for Addiction and Mental Health’s redevelopment project.
