Stantec to design new expansion for Trillium Health Partners’ Queensway site
The new Etobicoke hospital will include 350 beds dedicated to complex care and rehabilitation services.
Stantec has been selected as the prime consultant to provide architectural, interior design, and building and civil engineering services for the new Queensway Health Centre.
Part of Trillium Health Partners (THP), the nine-story, 600,000-square-foot patient tower will offer over 350 beds in a modern, dedicated centre for complex care and rehabilitation services.
The building design creates a healing environment with access to daylight and views supporting patients and their families throughout the patient journey, while offering intuitive wayfinding that minimizes patient travel within the facility. Landscaped outdoor spaces will serve as natural extensions of indoor patient and public spaces providing amenity space for patients, families, and staff. The building design brings a strong sense of connection to the community and reinforces the urban fabric.
The state-of-the-art hospital building will connect to the existing hospital complex via a pedestrian corridor. The new nine-storey patient tower will define the northern edge of the Queensway campus, with the primary hospital building visible from the north and northwest entrances, and H-shaped floor plates.
On the ground floor, public entrances will greet patients, families, and their visitors with check-in services, waiting areas, administration support, and retail amenities.
Two courtyards, one open to the east and one to the west, offer a place for respite and connection to nature. The east courtyard will be shared between the public and patients, with the north half providing a landscaped amenity that respects the privacy of patient bedrooms with a mix of low stone walls and planting. The south half is an open landscaped public space with a pedestrian entrance in the southeast public lobby area.
“In designing Queensway Health Centre, our team is embracing THP’s values of Compassion, Excellence, and Courage to create a dynamic, welcoming, and sustainable facility for the community,” said George Bitsakakis, project principal for Stantec. “We believe that facility design plays a vital role in optimizing patient care and clinical services while creating positive spaces for patients, staff, and the neighboring community. We’re excited to continue our work with THP to support the health and well-being of the community.”
As part of the redevelopment at Queensway, Stantec is also designing a new central utility plant to the existing hospital. In addition to the firm’s work at the Queensway campus, Stantec is providing planning, design, and conformance (PDC) services for THP’s new Mississauga Hospital project.
