The Joseph Brant Hospital redevelopment included the construction of the Michael Lee-Chin and Family Patient Tower, a new seven-storey tower that added 172 inpatient beds and 425,000 square feet to the existing hospital space, expanding the hospital to a total of approximately 800,000 square feet.

Other new additions to the redeveloped hospital include a new emergency department, two new operating rooms, 36 additional surgical beds, 10 additional critical care beds, expanded diagnostic imaging services such as X-rays, CT scans and MRIs, a new and expanded cancer care clinic, expanded outpatient care programs, a new post-anesthetic care unit and a renovated neo-natal intensive care unit.

“The newly renovated and expanded spaces at Joseph Brant Hospital will reduce wait times and give patients and families faster access to quality care in a modern setting,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, in a press release.
