We have the keys!

We are excited to announce that on November 21 we reached an important milestone in West Park’s campus transformation: our new hospital building achieved substantial completion!

This construction milestone means the facility is operational and has been officially handed-over from the contractor, EllisDon to West Park. Staff at the hospital can now begin training, orientation and move-in preparations for opening day in early Spring 2024.

We celebrated this achievement on Monday, December 4 with a visit from Sylvia Jones, Ontario Minister of Health and Michael Ford, Minister of Citizenship and Multiculturalism, who were given a tour of the building and learned about many of its key features.

When our new facility opens, it will have an immediate impact on our healthcare system. With 314 inpatient beds and double our current outpatient capacity, it will improve access to vital rehabilitation and complex care health services, while its innovative design will enhance patient care and help people get their lives back.

The group tours an inpatient room.

“With demand for West Park’s services expected to grow by over 50 per cent in the next 20 years, our new facility will increase our capacity to better serve an aging population and Ontarians with complex health conditions,” says Anne-Marie Malek, West Park’s President & CEO. “Every aspect of our new hospital underscores our commitment to helping patients get their lives back.” “Our generous donor community has supported our new hospital every step of the way,” says Doug Earle, CEO of West Park Foundation. “They are the very foundation of our new building.”
