Facts and Stats on Our Redevelopment
Mount Sinai Hospital under construction.
What we are Celebrating
- Six new floors to the Murray Street side of the building to house the Frances Bloomberg Centre for Women’s and Infants’ Health, out patient programs and office space.
- A 40% increase of space for The Frances Bloomberg Centre for Women’s and Infants’ Health — the Hospital’s largest program with over 6, 700 births a year and an internationally renowned high-risk pregnancy program.
- Structural upgrades to the entire hospital.
- An additional 130,000 square feet to deliver excellence in patient care.
Designed with Patients in Mind
The innovative design model was developed in consultation with patients and their families, clinical experts and award winning design and architectural teams.
An environmentally friendly approach to the new space incorporates special window glass that traps heat in the building, cutting electricity use during the winter months. The space also includes a Deep Lake Water Cooling System that reduces electricity use by 90 per cent, and new lighting that is regulated by sensors.
Did you know the new space has a building eyebrow? This is a steel installation close to the roof of the building, which shades the windows and building wall during direct sunlight, reducing cooling costs and saving energy.
Our next major capital redevelopment project will include:
- Upgrades to our Surgical Suites, Emergency Department, Critical Care Unit, Inpatient Units and Infrastructure.
- By 2014, the Renew Sinai project will increase the number of beds in the Hospital by 95.
- Once renovations are complete on the University side of the building by 2014, the entire Centre will be transformed. The Antenatal Unit will move to the 15th floor on the Murray Street side of the building, Labour and Delivery will move to the 15th floor on the University side and the NICU will be on the 17th floor on the University side of the building.
