Help us Transform Patient Care at St. Michael's for the 21st Century

Help complete our $210 million campaign, Inspire 2018, which will transform patient care at St. Michael’s. Please, give what you can – all gifts are great! With your help we will become the premier critical care hospital in Canada.

With the completion of the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, comprised of the Keenan Research Centre and the Li Ka Shing International Healthcare Education Centre, we boast state-of-the-art facilities to advance knowledge to improve treatment and to train the health care leaders of tomorrow.

Now we need to bring our patient care facilities up to today’s more exacting standards while allowing for the innovations and technologies of tomorrow. Our caregivers do great work, but they need new facilities to keep pace with demand and evolving standards of care.

Peter Gilgan Patient Care Tower

The centrepiece of our transformation is a new 17-storey critical care tower. This purpose-built space will offer leading-edge facilities — for the very best in patient care with:

  • Two new intensive care units;
  • Seven hybrid operating rooms;
  • And inpatient facilities for respirology, orthopedics, oncology and neurology.

With all-single rooms, dedicated space for families and the latest in comfort and safety, the tower will allow for the best possible patient outcomes.

The tower will also create a new public face for the entire hospital, with a welcoming main entrance and services for patients and their families.


Slaight Family Emergency Department

Using the best in design and practice, the new twice-as-large Emergency will offer great care in modern surroundings.

Non-urgent patients will move through a rapid assessment zone to reduce wait times. Urgent patients will be cared for in fully-enclosed rooms, to ensure privacy, comfort and the best in infection control.

We will add to our trauma capacity, create a separate mental health unit and put a CT scanner in the new imaging suite — all for better care delivered as rapidly as possible.



Research and Education

We are also raising funds for crucial research and education projects, including Chairs to attract and retain the top scientist-physicians in the world, and other key hospital priorities.


All Gifts are Gratefully Appreciated
