At long last, the moment we have all been waiting for has arrived. Well, almost – we still have a few years left in our redevelopment project, but now we have brand new images showcasing what our hospital will look like in the near future.
“It’s a bit like buying a brand new house,” says Tony Khouri, VP of Facilities and Capital Development. “The closer you get to your move-in date, the more you know about how the space will really look. We have worked closely with the clinical areas, the architects and interior designers to make sure these new depictions are as realistic as possible so employees and patients can get excited for the future.”
Let’s take a glimpse into the future:
Modernized building exterior
Yes, the image to the left is Mount Sinai! As you can see, our exterior will be modernized, and by adding windows on floors four to seven, we will be bringing more natural light into the hospital. If we were actually building a new house, don’t you think it would be among the nicest ones on the block?
18 new state-of-the-art operating rooms
Our perioperative services department is expanding overall, and this image offers a futuristic look into one of 18 state-of-the-art operating rooms to be constructed. What you see here is the latest technology that will allow for real-time imaging to help guide and improve surgical care.
New and expanded Emergency Department
Our Schwartz/Reisman Emergency Centre is the gateway to our hospital, and that calls for a warm welcome. In addition to our Emergency Department nearly doubling in size, technology will enable faster and seamless transitions throughout the department. Intuitive way finding, a sleek look and feel and more open space will also improve the overall experience of our patients and visitors.
Revamped experience before and after surgery
We’re getting a brand new and expanded space to better care for our patients before and after surgery. There will be 48 single patient bays to accommodate the increasing growth in our population, and to offer them increased privacy. An enhanced waiting room and introduction of new technology will improve the experience for patients and families.
