the face of health care for women.
The Ontario government directs 46% of spending to care for more patients, many of them chronically ill, within a system designed for acute illnesses and reactive treatment. Women’s College Hospital has a solution: we are changing the very definition of hospital and creating a health-care system that delivers services better, faster safer and more cost-effectively than ever before.
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.
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.
Founded more than 100 years ago by a group of women and led by the first Canadian female doctor licensed to practise in Canada, Women’s College Hospital continues to break ground, providing a unique array of programs at the intersection of women’s health, social justice and community medicine.
Research at Women’s College Hospital has impact around the world. Our scientists’ uniquely international perspectives inform research and community-based work that’s solving health problems in our local community and beyond. Together, we’re building a better world for all women and girls.
Women’s College Hospital’s internationally-recognized research team is tackling some of the greatest health challenges of our time. Inspired by our achievements, we are building a living laboratory and setting the course for a new era of knowledge creation and translation that will help keep people where they want to be: out of hospital.
