Our Bridgepoint Active Healthcare campus is featured as part of MaRS Market Intelligence’s month-long series on innovative hospitals in Ontario. The article includes an interview with Jane Merkley, Executive Vice President, Chief Nursing Executive and Chief Operating Officer and Kate Wilkinson, Vice President, Quality and Clinical Programs as they reflect on the role design plays in creating a positive, hopeful environment for our patients and family caregivers.
Jane notes in the article that Bridgepoint was designed as an environment of patient-centric care where people are empowered to self-manage. The hospital has all the design and programming to ensure that patients and families are engaged. “If you go over to Bridgepoint, you feel like there’s something different in the air,” she says.
Bridgepoint’s campus of wellness opened in 2013 and has been recognized with over 20 design awards, including the prestigious Governor General’s Medal in Architecture.
