This new unit will bring all of our cardiorespiratory and electrodiagnostics services together in one large, bright, self-contained space. This will be more convenient for patients – particularly those with heart disease and breathing complications.
Our community has one of the highest rates of heart disease in Ontario, with a trend to younger and younger patients – some only in their thirties.
We currently do not have the space to add other critical tests that will improve diagnoses and better access to treatment. In addition, the existing spaces are fragmented, located throughout the hospital, including the basement.
The new unit features:
- New services, including a chest pain clinic
- Bigger, brighter dedicated space to support patient education
- Rooms designed for maximum flexibility to take advantage of future advancements
Some units will also get a facelift and move to new, expanded spaces, with additional equipment, including:
- Diagnostic Cardiology
- Day Surgery
