Hi everyone,

As a leading academic hospital, we must plan today to meet the future needs of our patients. Last fall, I highlighted a strategic process called Master Planning and Master Programming (MPP) that will help guide UHN's capital redevelopment plans over the next five years and beyond.

We started the MPP proce ss at the Toronto Western Hospital where planning is underway to build the Krembil Discovery Centre (KDC). Influenced by UHN's Strategic Directions, updated Clinical Program Plans, capital requests and other sources, the TWH Master Planning Working Committee, led by Kathy Sabo, has now been completed. This high-level roadmap identifies four priority areas for the site:

  • Surgical Services redevelopment - Identifying potential opportunities to consolidate and expand surgical services capacity to achieve efficiency.
  • A mbulatory Care/Clinical Research consolidation - Redistributing space to accommodate service growth and clinical research beyond 2013.
  • Inpatient Bed Capacity validation - Confirming capacity exists in Fell Pavilion to support increased bed requirements and to move to industry standards.
  • Education Space integration and enhancement - Determining space required for Education plan in line with other academic Medical Centres.

​This MPP will certainly evolve and be updated regularly to reflect new and evolving services and current economic conditions. In the future, we will start a MPP process at the Toronto General and Princess Margaret sites.
