CHEO Unveils Design Plans for 1Door4Care

The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) has released its plan for the CHEO Integrated Treatment Centre, known as 1Door4Care.

Infrastructure Ontario recently announced that EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare (EDIH) has been awarded the contract to design, build and finance the new 1Door4Care: CHEO Integrated Treatment Centre (ITC) in Ottawa.

CHEO is seen as a global leader in pediatric health, providing world-class care and serving more than half a million children over a catchment area that includes Eastern Ontario, Northern Ontario, Western Quebec, and Nunavut. When complete, the new 6-storey treatment centre will merge seven care facilities into a single, state-of-the-art, purpose-built site on CHEO’s main Smyth Road campus.

The design for the new facility, which is targeting LEED Silver, will feature multi-use clinic space, physiotherapy rehab gym, expanded mental health clinics, indoor and outdoor space where teachers and therapists combine education and therapy, secure space for children and youth with complex emotional needs, modern treatment rooms for children with behavioural needs, state-of-the-art treatment rooms, advanced technology to enable virtual care, a physical link to the main building on campus, family support spaces, a new parking structure, and more.
