What is the big hole in the Royal University Hospital parkade?

RUH work site

RUH work site

This construction is for the new hospital parkade entrance which will replace the existing one located within the footprint of the future CHS.

Patients and families will use this new entrance to access RUH as before while a portion of the existing parkade and entrance is demolished on the site of where the new CHS will be constructed. After completion, this entrance will be one of two parkade entrances from all levels of the parkade into CHS and RUH and it will serve as the closest access point for patients, staff and visitors with accessibility challenges to enter RUH. This piece of work is expected to be completed in summer 2013.

Detailed design for the hospital is wrapping up this month with approvals of the new design to be completed through early 2013. Stay connected to the latest on the hospital on Facebook or Twitter.
