The 1,200,000 square foot Brampton Civic Hospital is one of Canada’s largest health care infrastructure projects and was one of the first hospitals to be built in Ontario under a Private-Public-Partnership
Brampton Civic Hospital opened its doors in October 2007 to provide enhanced healthcare programs and services to the rapidly growing Brampton community. Built on a greenfield site, the new facility offers increased capacity, improved clinical programs for adults and children, and many new services such as a critical care response team and cardiac catheterization suite. The facility operates as an open, accessible public hospital housing 608 acute care beds and 18 operating rooms.
The overall programs were consolidated into three major building blocks: treatment/diagnostic, nursing units, and parking and services. Each block was designed with its own specific criteria based on its respective programmatic, architectural, structural and MEP requirements. The programs for the treatment and diagnostic facilities were combined with the emergency services and inpatient facilities to optimize hospital operations. The central utilities building was combined with the elevated parking structure, combining the utilitarian site services within one building. Where possible, common structural bays were utilized and the strategic location of building services maximized the internal flexibility.
Highly transparent facades and earth-toned precast, reinforce the concept of a building that is at once approachable and patient-friendly, while equipped with leading-edge technologies and equipment.
