    West Park Healthcare Centre

    The development project will include a new, approximately 730,000 square foot hospital building, providing various inpatient, outpatient, and outreach services. Outpatient care space will be significantly increased to accommodate current and new services such as geriatric clinics and day hospital, and satellite hemodialysis. Eighty per cent of the beds will be in single-patient rooms.

    Community And Green Benefits

    • The project will adhere to the guidelines and sustainability principles of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system, with a goal of achieving the LEED®Silver certification or higher. LEED buildings focus on healthy indoor environments, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and efficient use of energy, water and other resources.
    • Expansion of green space and extensive landscaping for outdoor therapy areas and therapeutic gardens.

    Economic Benefits

    The West Park Healthcare Centre Redevelopment is significant economic opportunity for local suppliers and contractors. At the peak of construction, EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare estimates that more than 500 people will be on site daily.
