Draft architectural concept

On Jan. 31, The Ottawa Hospital presented a draft architectural concept of its new campus at a public information session. The concept reflects feedback provided by the public at in-person sessions held in fall 2017, as well as architectural analysis of the site of the former Sir John Carling building. To see the full presentation, click here.

The resulting draft concept incorporates the natural features of the Sir John Carling site, while also maximizing greenspace and preserving mature trees. It proposes an approach to underground parking that is discrete, efficient for patients and families, flexible for future vehicle developments, and integrated into a hospital structure.

This draft concept marks the starting point of a decade-long journey to plan, design and build a vital addition to eastern Ontario’s health system, replacing the aging Civic Campus.

This concept drawing is only a draft. It will be presented to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. There will be a number of opportunities to get involved and share ideas over the life of the project, in person and online.

Over the next three years, The Ottawa Hospital will work closely with the community-at-large, patients and staff, and our local and provincial partners in health care and government to validate and finalize the design, including its funding.
