Etobicoke General Hospital (part of William Osler Health System), which originally opened in 1972, underwent significant revitalization to meet the growing demands of its community.
Bird was selected to design and build the new Ancillary Services Building (ASB), an integral component of the entire Etobicoke General Hospital master plan.
The six-storey ASB houses physician offices and clinics, Osler ambulatory services, health sciences educational and simulation space, as well as 4,645-square-metres of new programmed space for the outpatient renal program and planned ambulatory space relocated from the existing hospital.
Acting as a gateway, the ASB frames the Etobicoke General Hospital Campus entry, creating a protected interior street from Humber College Boulevard to the new patient tower. The focus is defining the building as a bridge to wellness and healthcare.
