The opening of Oakville’s new state-of-the-art hospital is a significant milestone for health care in our community, and marks the culmination of vision, collaboration, and dedication to ensuring that residents have access to high-quality health care throughout all stages of life. I am pleased that the Ontario government had the foresight to invest up to $2.27 billion — the largest by any level of government into any project in Oakville — to meet the health care needs of our community.
The new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital will open its doors at 6:00 AM on Sunday, December 13, 2015 providing expanded health care services and an improved patient experience. The facility is triple the size of the existing Oakville hospital it will replace.
“At 6 a.m. on December 13, we will open our doors and welcome the first patients to the new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, celebrating the start of a new chapter of health care in Oakville. This marks the completion of a journey that began more than a decade ago as we set out to build a state-of-the-art health care facility that would meet the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of our community for many years to come. Thank you to the provincial and municipal governments, our Foundation and Volunteers and the residents of the Town of Oakville for supporting us on this journey and making an incredible investment in the health of our community,” stated Denise Hardenne, President & CEO, Halton Healthcare .
Patients will be accepted no sooner than 6:00 AM at the new location. If you require emergency care prior to 6:00 AM on December 13, 2015, please go to the current hospital location. Patients arriving prior to 6:00 AM at the location on Reynolds will be accepted, those arriving after 6:00 AM will need to proceed to the new location at Dundas and Third Line.
The new complex will offer an array of benefits to patients, including:
