As a result of the many individuals, corporations and foundations that have invested in The Campaign for Women’s College Hospital, we are now well on our way to achieving our $70 million goal. More than 50% of our goal has been committed — an incredible achievement that we celebrate with our entire community.
Our state-of-the-art glass and concrete building will also be a model for sustainable design and construction. Featuring green spaces, recycled construction content, re-purposed waste, a rooftop garden and 25% less energy consumption than most other hospitals, we are on track to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
Women’s College Hospital and the University of Toronto have developed a better way to help patients with chronic conditions take control of their symptoms, while also teaching the health-care professionals of tomorrow the practice of ambulatory care. In the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education (CACE) Complex Care Clinic, patients receive one-stop, coordinated care from a team of specialists and residents.
From a ground-breaking breast reconstruction surgical approach to pain management that begins even before surgery is underway, Women’s College Hospital is pioneering new ways of getting patients home safely and comfortably within 18 hours. Our work is challenging the traditional concepts of what can be accomplished in ‘day surgery’ and is influencing health-care practice across Canada and beyond.
At Women’s College Hospital, research underpins all that we do. Many of our scientists are clinically-based and their research questions are shaped by the needs of their patients. Real-life clinical needs and cultural perspectives drive the focus of all of our work.
For the first time, Women’s College Research Institute will be located within Women’s College Hospital, creating the globe’s first health-care institution to combine a uniquely woman-focused research agenda with the latest thinking in outpatient care. We are breaking down the traditional walls between research and clinical care, making innovation and discovery part of the hospital’s everyday operations.
