To top it off: the SickKids Patient Support Center is nearing completion
TORONTO – PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (Toronto), SickKids and B+H Architects recently celebrated a construction milestone with the crowning of the new Patient Support Center (PSC) at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto with a beam signing ceremony.
The center is a 22-story education, training and administrative facility for over 3,000 professional, management and support staff. It will also house the SickKids Learning Institute and a simulation center for hands-on teaching, supporting more than 1,000 trainees, students and learners each year.
Changes were happening on site before the building was completed with the removal of the south tower crane and the start of the roof structure steel. During the summer, the steel erection of the pedestrian bridge connecting the hospital atrium to the CSP was completed.
The PSC is launching the comprehensive campus redevelopment, Project Horizon, which aims to create a “hospital inspired by the future”. The renewed campus will eventually include two new towers to provide acute care, basic clinical services and ambulatory services.
“We’ve been on this journey for many months now and are thrilled to see the first phase of Project Horizon become a reality,” said Peter Goldthorpe, vice president, transformation at The Hospital for Sick Children, in a statement.
“Floor by floor, pane by pane, we are finally seeing the future of SickKids come to life. We are excited to take this next step to transform the campus and we are excited to open the doors of this modern building to our staff, patients and their families in 2023.”
