With Etobicoke General Hospital’s first major expansion moving steadily ahead, excitement is building! Construction on Etobicoke General’s new four-storey Patient Tower and seven-storey Etobicoke Wellness Centre is in full swing, with both buildings on schedule to open to the public by next year.
The patient tower will be ready for patients early next year and the Etobicoke Wellness Centre, which will replace the old medical office building, is slated to open this fall.
Construction on the tower is on track with the structure and exterior finishes near completion and progress is being made on the interior. It will add approximately 250,000 square feet of space for new and expanded departments, such as a spacious, modern emergency department, a new intensive and critical care unit, a new combined cardiac, respiratory and neurodiagnostic outpatient unit, and expanded women's and children's care.
The exterior of the Etobicoke Wellness Centre is also complete with interior work underway. When completed, the seven-storey building will replace the aging, existing medical office building with more than twice the square footage of contemporary medical space, including a new 30-station satellite dialysis program.
