Clearly marked traffic routes
There will be separate, clearly market outdoor traffic routes for emergency vehicles, hospital staff, public transit and the general public. This will ensure efficient, convenient travel to and from the hospital
Plenty of parking will be available close to appropriate entrances.
The new Oakville hospital has been uniquely designed with distinct separation of traffic types. Staff will have hallways and elevators for their use only, increasing patients’ privacy while traveling between departments.
More Single Patient Rooms
80% of inpatient rooms will be designated as single use. This results in more privacy, better infection control, and more opportunities for family to stay overnight with loved ones.
Patient Room Enhancements
Bedside terminals will allow patients access to the internet, television control, control of the lighting system and more.
Quiet Outdoor Spaces
There will be specifically designated areas outdoor for patients, families and friends to enjoy together.

Better Meal Selection
Patients will be able to choose their meal menu via their bedside terminal, television, or getting a personal visit from a food services staff member.
