Critical Care Centre

Sunnybrook’s Critical Care Centre will build on the organization’s proven track-record of caring for the sickest patients when it matters most. This new facility will provide life-saving care, be a hub of innovation and learning, and extend outside of Sunnybrook’s campuses to provide critical care expertise at home and around the globe.

Coming soon.


Building the future of critical care

The Centre will bring together Sunnybrook’s critical care units into one dynamic physical location. The building will be home to intensive care beds, teaching resources, research facilities, and a digital ‘mission control’ that will enable virtual critical care to take place across the province and provide advice around the world.

A fundamental component of this new structure will also be the province’s greatest resource for the care of patients who have complex malignant hematological cancers such as leukemia. Complementing Ontario’s existing centres, this new space will ensure patients with these intensive illnesses are cared for in the province, without having to be sent to the United States for care.

While this new centre will be an impressive building for those who are onsite, it will be the heart of a high performing critical care network that will extend its reach well beyond its physical structure.

This Centre will be home to a total of 260 beds:

  • Critical Care beds: 108
  • Medical/surgical: 106
  • Complex Malignant Hematology Inpatient/Day Hospital: 26
  • Ross Tilley Burn Centre: 20

There has been sharp growth in demand for critical care the past few years and this level of complex care requires an epicenter to lead the response to this need. Sunnybrook is already a leader in this area and provides world-class care for specialized trauma, cardiac, cancer, complex malignant hematology, stroke and neurosurgical care. Locating these specialized resources in one focused Critical Care Centre will bring all needed technology and human resources to the patient’s bedside – maximizing their chance of survival – and provide an environment that is most conducive to their healing and recovery.
