New South Niagara Hospital is set to be constructed in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Design firm Stantec has already been selected to provide planning, design, and conformance (PDC) services.
Having previously completed the campus plan for Niagara Health, Stantec’s healthcare team is now providing the illustrative schematic design, as well as detailed output specifications for the full range of design and construction requirements. Throughout the project duration, Stantec will evaluate conformance to design and construction requirements for the new hospital.
New South Niagara Hospital
The new South Niagara Hospital is proposed to be a 470-bed, full acute care hospital featuring centers of excellence specializing in stroke, complex care, geriatric and psychogeriatrics, and wellness in aging. It will also include a 24/7 emergency department and services for critical care, surgical, mental health and addiction, kidney care and dialysis, and testing and research.
When complete, the Hospital will span 1.3 million square feet on a 49.8-acre greenfield site. Upon opening in 2027, the hospital will be one of the first Canadian healthcare facilities to achieve WELL certification. Designing to WELL standards prioritizes the health and well-being of the staff, patients, and visitors by focusing on 10 concepts: air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind, and community. As an integral part of a connected healthcare system, the new facility will improve the patient and caregiver experience and strengthen access to local services.
