New Year, New Entrance

New Year, New Entrance

If you have visited West Park in recent months, you would have noticed the bustling activity on campus. For several months, construction of our new hospital has been in the crucial “enabling works” stage, preparing the campus for the “big dig” happening this month.

Part of the early construction stage included relocating the main entrance of the hospital, since the new build will block the previous entry. The new entrance area, which was formerly the location of the hospital’s piano lounge, opened in December with staff and volunteers on site to direct and orient visitors.

Excitement continues to build as we get closer to 2023, the planned date of completion of our new hospital. The excavation of the grounds will allow us to see the new West Park take shape.

“This is the part I look forward to when building a hospital — the actual construction of the new facility,” says Shelley Ditty, Vice-President of Campus Development and Support Services. “This is when years of planning and design work becomes reality.

Everyone who visits or works at West Park will have a front row seat to the construction site. We can just look out from our windows!”
