Creating a connected urban healthcare campus that inspires care teams to do their best work

Project Horizon is an endeavor to transform the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) campus located in the heart of urban Toronto. A multi-phased master planning exercise ignited the redevelopment project, which is now focused on creating a connected healthcare campus that delivers transformative care.

Part of the campus redevelopment includes replacing two of its oldest buildings with a new acute care hospital, the Peter Gilgan Family Patient Care Tower. Stantec was engaged as the prime consultant and architect on the project, working with KPMB architects and other in-house disciplines. The tower will add new patient and critical care beds, including a Level IV neonatal intensive care unit. Three additional operating suites will accommodate new technologies and procedures, and a new emergency department will offer 51 treatment spaces. To keep the campus functional during tower construction, our team is also designing projects to accommodate relocated programs, help support patient care and experience, and upgrade the site and building infrastructure.

The renovated facilities will enable staff, physicians, and researchers to do their best work while empowering patients and families to be partners in care. Supporting the integration of emerging technologies to improve SickKids’ operational efficiency will help provide a healing environment in a post-pandemic future.
