The new wing will provide a larger, more modern space, equipped to manage the hospital's current patient care volumes. As a result, patient care will be moved out of the aging Bond and Shuter Wings into the new space, which will include: 

  • Five new operating rooms large enough to include state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment so that surgeons have the flexibility to perform minimally invasive, image-guided or catheter-based procedures, as well as open surgery in the same operating room. 
  • Enlarged, state-of-the-art facilities for orthopedic surgery, oncology, coronary care and respirology, including the cystic fibrosis program, as well as critical care space for the coronary and medical-surgical units. 
  • Expansion of the current Emergency Department, which was originally designed to accommodate 45,000 patient visits, but now accommodates 70,000 a year-a number that continues to grow with the population. This expansion will allow St. Michael's Hospital to continue to fulfill its mandate as a regional trauma centre.

Community and Green Benefits

  • The emergency department renovation will enhance connectedness to the community, improve accessibility and safety and will enable St. Michael's Hospital to fulfill its mandate as a regional trauma centre and vital inner-city resource. 
  • With the new tower, improvements made to patient flow will greatly reduce wait times for a variety of services, including cardiac care, cancer care and surgeries.
