Ontario Investing Up to $2.13 Billion in State-of-the-Art Humber River Hospital
Ontario is investing up to $2.13 billion in this project. Premier Kathleen Wynne was at the hospital today to mark the completion of the new facility, which will consolidate acute care services that Humber River Hospital now delivers at three separate sites.
The new facility will automate routine processes to enhance patients' experience and allow doctors and nurses to focus more on caring and healing. For example, robots will deliver non-narcotic drugs and other supplies; diagnostic images such as MRI scans will be charted immediately so specialists can review them sooner; and patients will check in on self-serve kiosks that will automate patient records and notify the relevant care teams that the patient has arrived.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM3n8j-DJ1gPatients will also benefit from:
- An increase in capacity from 549 to 656 beds
- Expanded ambulatory, emergency and critical care services
- Modern diagnostics equipment to enable more detailed and accurate diagnosis and treatment
- Updated infectious disease control systems to monitor and prevent a broad range of infections.
