Ontario is increasing access to high-quality care for patients and families by expanding space for surgeries and post-operative care offered at University Health Network’s Toronto Western Hospital site.

The expansion will address the growing demand for care by increasing operating room capacity and redeveloping the space for both pre-operative services and post-operative care. As the hospital uses state-of-the-art technology to conduct research and offer pioneering treatments, the project will also modernize existing infrastructure to be able to adapt to changing technology.

Toronto Western Hospital offers a wide range of surgeries, including transplant, cancer, eye, spine, head and neck, musculoskeletal, general, and plastic. The hospital also houses Ontario’s largest neurosurgical program providing care for patients with highly complex conditions. The surgeons at Toronto Western Hospital are well known for their advanced training in their specialties and perform some of the most technically difficult procedures in the world.

“This investment in support of Toronto Western Hospital’s Surgical Services is critical to our ability to provide Ontarians with the very best in surgical care in areas such as neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, and specialty services such as the bariatric surgical program and the hand program,” said Dr. Charlie Chan, interim president and CEO of the University Health Network. “With this funding, we will be able to respond to the province’s growing needs by improving access to care and creating infrastructure that supports more effective and innovative surgical procedures.”

Toronto Western Hospital’s Sprott Department of Surgery is one of the largest surgical programs in Canada, performing more than 25,000 operations annually in 39 staffed operating rooms.
