Stephenson Engineering is Structural Consultants in joint venture for this new one billion dollar, 1.6 million square foot state-of-the-art hospital, designed to replace Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. The design features a low-rise main building with a ten-storey tower rising on the east side, accommodating diagnostic and treatment facilities, ambulatory care facilities, a cancer clinic, child and adolescent mental health services, rehabilitation and complex continuing care, as well as a variety of support departments. 80% of the 457 beds are designed as single patient rooms, as part of its enhanced infection control and patient care plan.
The facility will feature integrated electronic tracking of patient information, laboratory robotics and wireless technology to provide a “silent” no-paging environment. It is designed to target LEED Silver Certification.
