HSC Winnipeg Women's Hospital

Winnipeg, Manitoba (in association with Parkin Architects)

Rooted in the philosophy of patient and family-centred care, the new Women and Newborn Hospital was designed with intensive public and staff consultation, with the goal of environmental sustainability at the forefront.

From ambulance bays, triage, and retail services to an NICU unit, operating rooms, post-partum units, and spiritual centres - including a ceremonial space for smudging - the new hospital is a place of caring support for all the diverse families of Winnipeg and Manitoba.

From single-patient rooms with large windows, a super-efficient layout for medical units and highly sustainable and calming green roof, the Women and Newborn Hospital was designed to be welcoming, respectful, and peaceful for families.
