Adamson Associates Architects

Completion date

July, 2018


The Joseph Brant Hospital (JBH) redevelopment project encompasses the construction of a new 7-storey, 400,000 sq. ft., 172-bed patient care tower and 120,000 sq. ft. of renovations to the existing buildings. The patient-centered project leverages the unique and bucolic location to improve the quality of care, with site organization and built form of the redevelopment designed to acknowledge the hospital’s location adjacent to Lake Ontario in the heart of Burlington’s waterfront area.

The project design incorporates a human-centered approach that aims to provide patients with a comfortable and healing environment. The patient rooms have been carefully crafted to provide stunning views of either the lake or the historic Niagara Escarpment. Seventy-five percent of the patient rooms offer a view of the lake, and the remaining rooms offer a view of the escarpment. Public spaces, such as the main lobby and cafeteria, have also been designed to offer beautiful lake views and JBH’s cherished “Protected Wood Lot.”

The project also includes the construction of a new pedestrian bridge that will link the existing parking structure to the new entrance lobby, providing patients with easy access to the hospital. The LEED Silver accreditation of the project ensures that the redevelopment is environmentally friendly and sustainable.
