Building Our Future

Hospital redevelopment at LHSC

Our hospital redevelopment journey is almost complete as we are now in the third and final phase of acute care restructuring, Milestone 2, Phase 3 (M2P3).

When finished, M2P3 will provide the community with modernized health care facilities that meet the latest infection prevention and control standards and barrier-free features to improve accessibility to people with disabilities.

During this final phase of redevelopment additional operating rooms are being constructed; the department of medicine and allied health services are being consolidated and a family medicine/palliative care inpatient unit is being developed.

M2P3 is the final phase of redevelopment and will bring to a close the completion of the HSRC directives prescribed in 1997.

Milestone 2, Phase 3 (M2P3) and its predecessor, Milestone 2, Phase 2 (M2P2), are part of a larger overall hospital redevelopment project to reorganize and align the delivery of acute care services in London. Since 1997, LHSC and St. Joseph’s have been working together to accomplish the following:

August 2011
Milestone 2, Phase 2, a joint restructuring initiative between London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph's Health Care London was completed. It represented the largest hospital restructuring project in the city’s history.

Milestone 2, Phase 2 began in 2008 and was completed in August 2011. This milestone included 23 internal hospital moves and five clinical program transfers between LHSC and St. Joseph’s. Completion of M2P2 means we have realigned and consolidated many clinical and support services between the two organizations – reducing duplication of work and improving the overall patient care environment.

M2P2 also represented an unprecedented amount of construction as the North Tower was completed at LHSC's Victoria Hospital.

Completion of M2P2 has brought significant consolidation of services, particularly in women’s and children’s programs, new and renovated spaces and improved patient care environments.

Milestone 2, Phase 1 (M2P1) began in 2007 and was focused on construction and renovations at various hospital sites. Construction of the outer shell of the North Tower at Victoria Hospital was completed in 2007. M2P1 also included the construction and renovation of at least 10 major care delivery areas along with clinical support services.

Construction of the outer shell of the north tower at Victoria Hospital began.

Milestone 1 began in 1998 and was completed in June 2005. This milestone represented 42 internal hospital moves and 23 clinical program transfers between LHSC and St. Joseph’s. It culminated in 2005 with the consolidation of emergency care, the creation of urgent care and the move of inpatient services, with the exception of acute mental health care, from the aging South Street Hospital facilities to Victoria Hospital.

Construction costs for Milestone 1 were $216 million for LHSC.

London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph’s Health Care London began working together to reorganize and align the delivery of acute care services in London, as prescribed by the Health Services Restructuring Commission (HSRC) directives.
