Bridgepoint Health Opens

Bridgepoint Health has officially opened in Toronto and as the largest health care facility of its kind in Canada, it’s well positioned to become the leader in complex continuing care in Canada.

Designed by a large team of architects (of which the editor of see-change.net was a part) including HDR Architecture, Diamond and Schmitt, KPMB, and Stantec, the 10 storey, 462 bed new facility is challenging the way we think about buildings where health care occurs.

In a recent Toronto Star article Christopher Hume responds adeptly to a reader that suggests public funds spent on Bridgepoint were miss-used. The reader suggests that the main priorities of health care should be cleanliness and staff performance. As Hume is quick to point out, one of the salient design concepts at the new hospital is that design can be recruited to improve health care.
