In January, HHS announced an exciting partnership with Siemens to procure, maintain and renew our diagnostic imaging equipment. A CT scanner for WLMH is a priority and we are pleased to be moving forward with this work. Read more about the scanner.

Expert planning consultants coming on board

We’re excited to be onboarding a functional programmer and cost consultants for the new build! These experts have done a lot of work in Ontario hospitals, including with HHS, and have a wealth of knowledge around provincial hospital design, accessibility, and building standards. Contracts are still being signed, but here’s a reminder about what they will be doing at this stage of the WLMH rebuild.
