Diagnostic Imaging Building, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Located on the Health Sciences Centre campus between the Children’s Emergency, Ann Thomas Critical Services, Children’s Hospital, and the Women and Newborn Hospital, the 7-storey infill project was designed to support and enhance the hospital’s diagnostic testing capabilities and improve access to new developments in pediatric and adult patient care. Additionally, the facility houses the Health Sciences Centre’s permanent helicopter ambulance landing pad, enabling HSC to better fulfill its mandate as the trauma centre for Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut.
The primary objective was the expanded patient-focused Pediatric Diagnostic Imaging program including Ultrasound, Fluoroscopy and redevelopment of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab. A dedicated Magnetic Resonance Imager (MRI) for children was provided along with a new CT scanner within the Digital Radiography Suite. A new OR-compatible Angio Suite and the existing HSC Angio Suites and Children’s Heart Centre will be relocated within the facility. The project also provides a service tunnel and third floor overpass connection to the new Women and Newborn Hospital.
