This project involved the design of a new consolidated Acute Care facility, replacing the two existing hospitals in Sault Ste. Marie. IDEA was commissioned to complete site selection, the Master Plan and act as the Architects/Engineers of Record. The facility contains 300 beds and has a wide variety of acute care and support services. As a teaching hospital, it provides space for the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, tele-health and an auditorium. Outpatient services are located at the main entrance level to ease access for patients.
