Phases I & II

Growing with the Community - THE PHASES OF CREDIT VALLEY’S EXPANSION

PHASE I – $50 Million “World Class Right Here” Campaign
Enabled the establishment of The Carlo Fidani Peel Regional Cancer Centre and The Vijay Jeet & Neena Kanwar Ambulatory Care Centre

In June 2005, a 330,000 square foot expansion opened to house the Carlo Fidani Peel Regional Cancer Centre (PRCC) and the Vijay Jeet & Neena Kanwar Ambulatory Care Centre made possible in large part because of our community’s support.

The PRCC has provided the community with a specialized treatment centre for patients battling cancer, providing the highest quality care. Until 2005, patients from the communities of Peel, Halton, Dufferin, Wellington, Simcoe and beyond had to travel considerable distances for radiation therapy and/or specialized cancer surgery which is now provided close to home. The regional cancer centre includes systemic and radiation treatment for patients.

The Ambulatory Care Centre has provided quality patient care with a scheduled walk-in, walk-out, same-day approach in the areas of cardiopulmonary, rehabilitation, diagnostic imaging, out-patient mental health, urology, ophthalmology, fracture and specialized dental programs, and accounted for about two-thirds of the total physical space in the hospital’s Phase I expansion.

By relocating, efficiencies were significantly increased within the Ambulatory Care program, and congestion in the Emergency Room was decreased. The space enables patient-focused care with waiting spaces, greater privacy and barrier-free accessibility.

PHASE II – $45 Million “Lifetime of Care” Campaign
Enabled the establishment of The Erin Mills Regional Women’s and Children’s Health Centre

In November 2011, the new A & H wings at Trillium Health Partners - Credit Valley Hospital added 270,000 square feet of space to the hospital, made possible by the support of our community. An additional 70,000 square feet of existing space was also renovated during the expansion project. The hospital's Phase II capital project led to the creation of 170 new full-time equivalent staff positions as of April 2011.

The new four-storey inpatient unit (A wing) and two-storey patient care wing (H wing) have enhanced the community's access to health care services by increasing the hospital's capacity from 382 to 471 beds and doubling the number of labour and delivery rooms from seven to 15, while providing additional room for future growth.

The wings house the largest Paediatric Oncology satellite program in the province outside of Sick Kids, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Advanced Regional Level II Centre for maternal and newborn care, and the regional Paediatric Medicine Clinic including a 41 bed paediatric inpatient unit and a larger outpatient clinic and treatment area.

The regional programs housed within the Centre mean far fewer families need to travel for specialized care. They can receive exceptional care, close to home, keeping families together and better able to heal.
