Perkins Eastman is transforming an older hospital to a new model of community care with environmentally responsible design and a contemporary non-institutional environment.

Major projects:
Ambulatory SurgiCentre: Comprising both a 22,400 sf (2,000 sm) renovation and 9,600 sf (900 sm) of new construction, the facility is the centerpiece of the multi-phased transformation program. The vision is based on the image of a garden or spa—natural and relaxing—with an ambiance more evocative of a hospitality environment than a hospital.

Spine Institute and Rehabilitation Facilities: The 9,000 sf (836 sm) ambulatory care facility provides comprehensive diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and surgery services. Its interdisciplinary approach includes physiotherapy, massage therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic, kinesiology, and psychology.

Betty and Buster Lockwood Cancer Detection and Treatment Centre: Combines outpatient services with private wellness services in a dramatically different kind of healing environment—a fusion of healthcare with health club.

Betty Wallace Women’s Health Centre: This 2,900 sf (270 sm) renovation reflects a hospitality-based care model. Patients and visitors are welcomed by a reception desk with ample room to verify appointments and private changing rooms have custom robes and a sink. Barrier-free spaces include exam tables that can be raised and lowered. Spa-like curtains separate waiting areas from patient corridors which are accented with a gallery of photos of women.

Trillium Way: A bold and dramatic pedestrian street serves as the planning anchor for the project. As space for new medical services is added, a segment will be added to the interior street.
