In 2023, following the COVID-19 pandemic, GBGH took the first steps to move the project along, including the development of official plans, colour schemes, finishes and a schedule for the first phase of room renovations.
In July 2023, the first phase began with the renovation of 4 semi-private rooms on the hospital’s 2E inpatient unit. Although there is no good time to close beds, this is an important priority for the hospital to bring our inpatient rooms up to today’s standards and ensure our donors are having the impact they have generously supported. The estimated timeline for completion of the initial 4 beds is 7-8 weeks.
The first phase of the project will include a total of 18 beds (12 rooms: 2 ward, 2 private, 8 semi-private) and is expected to be completed in early 2024.
Ward Room: Green Colour Scheme
Semi-Private Room: Blue Colour Scheme
The new rooms will reflect the beauty of trees, rocks and water surrounding us on Georgian Bay. Ward rooms will be completed with a green accents; private and semi-private rooms with blue accents.
Each room renovation will include:
