TORONTO — The Ontario Government is investing in the construction of the new Peter Gilgan Family Patient Care Tower and the expansion of the blood and marrow transplant/cellular therapy unit at SickKids in Toronto.
The commitment is part of the government’s overall investment of $27 billion over the next 10 years to build new and expanded hospital infrastructure across the province.
While the long-term redevelopment project known as Project Horizon is underway, the renovation of SickKids’ current blood and marrow transplant/cellular therapy unit will increase services for patients in isolation, indicates a release issued by the Office of the Premier. The renovation of this unit is expected to be completed by summer 2022.
The SickKids campus redevelopment project is in the early stages of planning and will also include renovation to the existing atrium, expanded parking facilities and a new patient support centre for administration and support services. The blood and marrow transplant/cellular therapy unit revitalization includes renovating 9,400 square feet of existing space.
