Building for the Future

Nearly 50 years ago, on May 12, 1968, North York General Hospital admitted its first patients. Today, this community's multisite hospital cares for more than 260,000 patients each year. North York General is evolving to better meet the needs of our patients and families. By redeveloping and modernizing its facilities, the hospital will continue to provide high-quality health care for the next 50 years and beyond.

Recent and ongoing redevelopment and modernization projects:

Phillips House
The Phillips House Redevelopment Project allows North York General Hospital to fully live out its core value of putting patients first in everything we do by creating a therapeutic environment tailored to meet the mental health needs of our patients and their families. This vacant 1940s estate surrounded by lush landscape will be transformed to offer a warm, home-like setting to help alleviate some of the stress and stigma mental health patients face.
Phillips House will offer mental health services for children, adolescents, women and their families.

This new medical inpatient unit provides additional isolation room capacity, relieves wait time pressures in the Emergency Department and improves quality of patient care. Practically all the patient rooms in the new Medicine and Neuro-Stroke Unit — 16 out of 18 rooms — are private while two are semi-private.
