New Campus Information Session: January 31

The Ottawa Hospital has begun the planning process for the development of a new regional trauma and acute care centre at the former site of the Sir John Carling building to replace the existing Civic Campus, which has been in operation since 1924. Public engagement so far has included a third-party report on engagement, a series of community feedback sessions, and the launch of a website devoted to sharing information and soliciting ideas. Community members, patients and hospital staff have been sharing ideas and priorities for the new campus.

On January 31 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Lansdowne Park Horticulture Building, The Ottawa Hospital will host a public information session to present an update on hospital services planned for the new campus and the background journey to an architectural design concept.

The draft architectural concept will demonstrate the landscape influences behind how the buildings could be placed on the Sir John Carling site. The session will also update on a Community Engagement Group which will work closely with the hospital’s Board of Governors on range of issues such as access, parking, greenspace and design.

Thank you to everyone who participated and shared ideas and feedback in the initial series of information sessions. There will be a number of opportunities to get involved and share ideas in the coming months and over the life of the project, in person and online.

To provide input before January 31, please visit www.greatertogether.ca/engage to share your ideas. Your feedback will be essential throughout the process so that together, we can plan and develop a campus that serves our community for generations to come.
