Canada’s largest hospital coming to Mississauga

61

The new, fully-developed Mississauga Hospital announced on Wednesday will be the largest renewal plan in the province’s history. It will also be the largest hospital in Canada, noted the provincial government. 

The province’s multi-billion-dollar investment includes a new, state-of-the-art Mississauga Hospital and expansion of the Queensway Health Centre, both of which are part of Trillium Health Partners.

“This investment represents the largest hospital renewal plan in Ontario’s history,” said Premier Doug Ford.

The new, fully redeveloped Mississauga Hospital is anticipated to include one of the largest emergency departments in Ontario, increase the number of operating rooms from 14 to 23 and have over 950 beds. 

The rebuild project includes full replacement of the existing hospital site at 100 Queensway West in Mississauga with advanced diagnostic imaging facilities, a new pharmacy and clinical laboratory as well as a new parking structure.

The redevelopment plans also include a new inpatient care tower at the Queensway Health Centre at 150 Sherway Dr, Etobicoke to centralize complex continuing care and rehabilitation services for patients, while also adding over 150 new beds and a new parking structure.

The announcement coincided with Trillium Health Partners’ 10-year anniversary.

“Our government made a commitment to end hallway health care and build a better, connected health care system centred on the needs of patients,” said Deputy Premier and Health Minister Christine Elliott. “As we celebrate Trillium Health Partners’ 10-year anniversary, this new investment to support THP’s redevelopment is just one way we are delivering on that commitment.” 

Over the next 20 years, the demand for health care services offered by Trillium Health Partners is expected to increase by nearly seven times more than the average hospital in Ontario as the Peel and Etobicoke communities continue to grow. 

THP currently operates over 1,300 hospital beds across multiple sites which includes Credit Valley Hospital. Over 1.7 million patients visit THP hospitals annually. The expansion projects will help to relieve capacity pressure at the Credit Valley Hospital, and improve the patient experience across all sites, according to the hospital network.

“The redevelopment and expansion projects at THP will ensure we have the modern facilities and much-needed capacity to deliver high quality, exceptional care to this community for generations to come,” said THP President & CEO Karli Farrow. 

Ford says Wednesday’s announcement is part of a plan to spend $30 billion over 10 years on increasing hospital capacity.
