Toronto Veterinary Emergency HospitalLocation: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Finding space to build a large, upscale specialty facility in the Toronto metropolitan area is not easy. These doctors bought an existing building, demolished the roof and expanded vertically. The finished facility is a 16,000 square-foot specialty referral hospital. As is often the case with specialty facilities, the challenge was trying to decide how to split the hospital into two floors. In this case in-patient and surgery activities occur on the second floor, and outpatient, emergency and ICU are located on the first floor.
