New MRI suite at Toronto Western Hospital

The redevelopment of any medical department is always a challenge for healthcare facilities. UHN has faced many at TWH during the redevelopment of its medical imaging department, such as:

  • Replacing two (2) existing MRIs and add two (2) extra MRIs while maintaining the clinical activities at all time;
  • Avoiding disturbances of the operating rooms (OR) and Day surgery on the level above its MRI department;
  • Delivering four (4) MRIs in a high-density population group;
  • Reinforcing existing structural slab and upgrading building mechanicals without services interruption.
