Canadian Architect takes a look at how we created human-centered design for the thoughtfully coordinated Mount Sinai ED renovation in Toronto

Mount Sinai Hospital plays a vital role in the lives of many Torontonians, while also conducting world-class research and training. To do so effectively, its facilities need to feel fresh and exemplify leading standards. Since 2009, Stantec's Gail Hannah and Michael Moxam have been collaborating with a close-knit team of seasoned Mount Sinai administrative and clinical staff on renovations throughout the hospital’s 1953 building.
