Building Etobicoke General 

Etobicoke General Hospital’s transformation is underway. We’re adding a four-storey Patient Tower and an ancillary services building to the site. This expansion will give our programs and services the state-of-the-art facilities and space they need to provide our community with world-class patient care.

We’re on track to open the ASB by summer 2018 and the new Patient Tower a few months later. 

The Patient Tower will add 250,000 square feet to the facility. It will house:

  • a new emergency department that is twice as large as the existing space, with dedicated diagnostic imaging and mental health emergency services;
  • a new combined Cardiology, Respiratory and Neurodiagnostic Unit that will provide a single, convenient location for the diagnosis, treatment and education of patients with heart, breathing, and neurological complications;
  • a new Maternal Newborn Unit with 10 private birthing suites, two fully-equipped operating rooms, and a 10-bassinette Level II Nursery for fragile newborns who need extra care;
  • an ICU/CCU four times the size of its current space;
  • an Ambulatory (day) Procedures Unit offering advanced minimally invasive procedures that will allow patients same-day discharge and recovery at home;
  • more comfortable, modern patient rooms with lots of natural light. 

The six-storey ancillary services building will replace the existing medical office building. It will also accommodate some outpatient programs and services, including:

  • a new, larger fracture clinic;
  • diagnostic imaging services;
  • a new 36-station satellite Dialysis Program;
  • doctors’ offices and clinics, most of which will transfer from the existing medical office building on the Etobicoke General site.
