The Need

Why is a new Hospital needed?
Grey Bruce Health Services Markdale needs a new Hospital because the current facility, built over several decades ago is now outdated and inefficient. The emergency department is too small and lacks privacy. The Hospital’s layout and design is increasingly at odds with the outpatient delivery system now in place. Due to current space limitations new services and technology cannot be implemented.

Is renovation of the current building an option?
No. Renovation costs are estimated to be higher than new construction. The current site is not large enough for a major renovation.

What improvements will be made by building a new hospital?
The new Hospital will be a modern facility complete with the following:

  • 54,000 square ft of new construction
  • Larger more Private Emergency Department
  • Diagnostic Imaging Department
  • Digital Technology
  • Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation
  • Medical Unit with larger patient rooms
  • Fully Handicapped Accessibility in all areas
