On June 26, dignitaries, donors, community members and Osler staff celebrated Etobicoke General’s transformational expansion and the “topping off” of its new four-storey patient tower, as well as the site’s new seven-storey Ancillary Services Building (ASB).
 
Opening in 2018, the new patient tower will add 250,000 square feet of new and expanded departments to the 45-year-old hospital, such as a larger state-of-the-art emergency department, new critical care unit, new cardiorespiratory and neurodiagnostic services, and expanded women’s and children’s spaces. Osler Foundation Board Member, John Esplen expressed his commitment to raise $25M through the local community to help build and equip the patient tower.
 
“We are truly fortunate to have wonderful donors and champions, to help ensure we can move forward,” he said. “Their work, however, has just begun. We need to equip every room on every floor. Those donations – large and small – must come from the community.”
 
For a limited time, your donation to Etobicoke General will be doubled as part of Orlando Corporation’s $15 Million Matching Challenge, up to a maximum of $5M.
 
“When we hit that goal, the community will have helped to generate $10M toward the new patient tower,” said Esplen. Help build and equip the new tower. Please call (416) 747-3388 or visit YouHaveThePower.ca.
