New Oakville Hospital

The New Oakville Hospital is one of Ontario’s largest P3 (public/private partnership) projects, initiated to support the healthcare needs of a rapidly growing population base in Halton Region. The 1.5 million sq. ft. (excluding the parking garage) facility will replace the existing Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital as the primary acute care facility for the area, with 457 inpatient beds and 11 operating rooms.  Parkin is responsible for the interior and clinical design of the new buildings, as well as project and construction administration. The Parkin design includes three buildings linked via corridors at each level and embodies an understanding of healthy communities, addressing the healing and spiritual needs of the community and leadership in principles of sustainability. The facility has a total of 40 departments, ranging from surgery and diagnostic services to emergency and ambulatory care in addition to inpatient and outpatient mental health and rehabilitation units and inpatient complex continuing care. An outdoor garden located at level 2 above the entry provides secure outdoor space for the Complex Continuing Care and Rehabilitation Units and there is a secure outdoor therapy area for Rehab located at level 4. The hospital is being designed and built to meet the Canada Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system, with a goal of achieving LEED® Silver certification. Cost of the project is $2 billion.
