Etobicoke Wellness Centre
Client: William Osler Health System (Procured through Infrastructure Ontario)
With: Bird Construction, Architect+Research+Knowledge Inc. (ARK)
As part of the revitalization of Etobicoke General Hospital, this new six-storey Wellness Centre houses physician offices and clinics, ambulatory services, as well as educational and other programmed space supporting the Hospital. Acting as a gateway to the Etobicoke General Hospital Campus, the Centre frames the entrance and provides a protected interior street from Humber College Boulevard to the new patient tower.
The landscape design creates a welcoming and comfortable setting for the building. There are abundant trees and understory plantings with a great variety of foliage and flower colour throughout the year. Full accessibility, opportunities for sitting in shade or sun, clear visibility throughout the site and clearly defined travel routes to the building and hospital offer pleasant and safe green surroundings to support the hospital’s goal of establishing a healthful, therapeutic environment.
