Premier Doug Ford visited Etobicoke General Hospital to celebrate the completion and grand opening of a new patient tower that will put patients first.

Premier Ford was joined at the grand opening by Robin Martin, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, on behalf of Ontario’s Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Christine Elliott.

The new patient tower will add 250,000 square feet of space and house urgently needed services. Patients and families living in Etobicoke will benefit from:

  • A state-of-the-art emergency department;
  • An expanded critical care unit with intensive monitoring and treatment for serious illnesses or injuries;
  • A new unit that will specialize in the care of cardiac, respiratory, and neurological complications;
  • A new maternal newborn unit with 10 private birthing suites, two operating rooms and a 10-bassinette newborn intensive care unit to provide specialized care for newborns who are underweight, sick or need extra care;
  • An outpatient unit for day procedures, allowing patients same-day discharge and recovery at home; and
  • Patient rooms filled with natural light, providing privacy and space for patient’s family members.

“The new patient tower at Etobicoke General Hospital will provide patients and families with a new, state-of-the-art facility that will provide care for generations to come,” said Ford. “This project is part of our plan to invest $27 billion over the next 10 years in hospital infrastructure projects to build more capacity throughout Ontario.”

Ontario is investing up to $358 million to build a new four-storey patient tower at William Osler Health System – Etobicoke General Hospital. The new patient tower at Etobicoke General Hospital is 250,000 square feet.
