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.
Women’s College Hospital’s unparalleled layout will support the ambulatory care model with comfortable, accessible and adaptable patient care spaces that allow for collaboration, innovation and future expansion. We will co-locate programs and bring together the hospital and its research institute so patients receive comprehensive care, inspired by research and with fewer visits.
Ambulatory care is defined as any surgery, treatment or procedure that allows patients to return home within 18 hours. Within Canada’s first stand-alone academic ambulatory care hospital this will mean faster recovery, fewer complications and less cost to Canada’s health-care system.
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.
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.
With studies underway in more than 30 countries and publications in the world’s major medical journals, Women’s College Hospital is leading the world in research about women’s health and health system solutions. We are the niche hospital that creates innovative health-care models, and then publishes and evaluates them for the benefit of health-care systems around the world.
