West Park Healthcare Centre is opening the door to a new era in healthcare through a bold and transformative hospital redevelopment. In preparation for the new hospital, the Centre is conducting the innovative Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE), an exciting new research study. The POE is a formal evaluation of a hospital’s design, use and operating conditions conducted before — and after — the new facility is built, and will evaluate 6 priority design elements of our new hospital:
The POE is a comprehensive, ongoing study that will be conducted from 2018 – 2025.
The POE will help us contribute to building better healthcare for the future, by measuring the impact of the new hospital on patients, employees, volunteers and family/friends, and on operational efficiencies, safety, and overall user experience. It will also result in a final report for the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, contributions to scientific literature, and opportunities to engage West Park patients, staff and family/friends with campus development.
As part of data collection, West Park patients, staff, volunteers, and friends/family are strongly encouraged to get involved in each of the 6 research studies by providing valuable feedback on their West Park experience. Your input will be used to improve healthcare design for the future! To participate or to learn more, please contact 416-243-3600 ext. 2600 or POE@westpark.org.
