Zeidler Partnership was selected to provide Stage 1 masterplanning for Phase One of redevelopment of the William Osler Health System’s Etobicoke General Hospital (EGH) site. Services provided include those outlined by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC): Stage 1 and 2, Facility Condition Assessment, Environmental Assessment, Enabling Works Stage 3.1, 3.2, 4 and 5 and Post Construction.

Phase One of the redevelopment will see the construction of a new four-storey wing that will provide new and expanded facilities to accommodate the growing emergency department, critical care unit (CCU) and intensive care unit (ICU) at the Etobicoke General Hospital. In addition to an expanded and renovated ER, ICU and CCU, the new wing — which could potentially be open as early as 2015/16 — will also provide new facilities for maternity and newborn care, enhanced day surgery capacity, a fracture clinic, new inpatient dialysis services, and increased ambulatory clinics.<br><br>A “public room” connects the existing hospital to the new wing and creates a new lobby, entrance and public face for EGH.
