Humber River Hospital – Patient Care Reinvented
As the first fully digital hospital in North America, Humber River Hospital is also the largest acute care hospital in the Greater Toronto Area. It opened at Keele Street and Hwy 401 in October 2016.
At 1.8 million square feet, this state-of-the-art facility serves a catchment area of some 850,000 residents in a neighbourhood that is among the region’s most culturally diverse and economically challenged. Even more significant, it is having a profound effect on the way health care is delivered across our country.
- Increased capacity to 656 beds, including 48 critical care beds.
- Expanded emergency services to accommodate over 107,000 visits per year.
- Expanded ambulatory services, including more capacity for cancer care, orthopaedics, and
- Patient-centred care with 80% single-patient rooms providing amenities for family
- Modern diagnostics equipment for detailed, accurate patient diagnosis and treatment
- Portals of care for easy access and less walking within the building.
As a financial cooperative, community development is at the core of our value proposition, and Humber River Hospital occupies a special place in our collective consciousness. It’s the hospital that has served our community for many, many years; a place where many of our children were born, and where many of our seniors continue to get the medical care that they need.
And so, on behalf of our members, our credit union pledged its support – the very first community organization to do – so with the hope that we could motivate others to follow. In May 2012, we committed to a $1 million donation over ten years towards the $225 million building campaign, which had been co-chaired, until late 2017, by Fausto Gaudio, our credit union’s president and CEO.
