Groves Memorial Hospital, 2016

The new hospital will be built in Aboyne, Ontario, between Elora and Fergus, and replace the existing GMCH in Fergus. The new GMCH project will include:

  • A replacement hospital built on a greenfield site, with more space for emergency, ambulatory, diagnostic and inpatient services to accommodate a growing community
  • 37 beds will be in private single patient rooms with a dedicated washroom and shower and large windows
  • Eight beds will be in two-bed rooms each with a private washroom
  • All inpatient rooms will have views of the surrounding rural landscape, including the Grand River and extensive trail network
  • Modernized infection control measures, including additional isolation facilities, to enhance the hospital’s ability to respond to a pandemic or disease outbreak
  • An onsite helipad to allow for faster access to patient transfers by air ambulance
  • Large windowed areas that allow natural light to penetrate deep into the building and ultimately connect the interior with the outside
  • Simplified wayfinding, making it easy for visitors and patients to navigate to their desired destinations.
