The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) marked a major milestone on Tuesday, Nov. 7 as it unveiled design plans for the CHEO Integrated Treatment Centre, also known as 1Door4Care.
The new, six-storey, approximately 200,000-square-foot building will be connected by a link to the main hospital and offer services for children and youth living with complex medical, developmental, behavioural and mental health needs.
The building will include a multi-use clinic space, a physiotherapy rehab gym, expanded mental health clinics, an indoor and outdoor multi-use space, a space for children and youth with complex emotional needs, state-of-the-art treatment rooms, advanced technology to enable virtual care, family support and community spaces as well as a new parking structure.
“The 1Door4Care dream began 16 years ago as we recognized the challenges faced by families with children and youth with special needs, mental health challenges and complex medical conditions,” said Alex Munter, chief executive officer (CEO) and president of CHEO. “We wanted to create programs and spaces that help every child and youth live their best life – through an innovative, individualized model of care that centers around the child and their family.”
