Many may not know this about our health care system: that the Cambridge, Memorial Hospital (CMH) is a medical teaching hospital affiliated with McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Medicine. “We are a teaching site for general surgery, orthopaedic surgery and anesthesia,” said John Fabiano, Project Manager, Construction. “Our new Medical Education Campus will provide training space and videoconferencing facilities to enhance CMH’s caregivers’ knowledge and skills. Residents train here, and our Chief of Staff, Dr. Kunuk Rhee, is working hard to build a culture to encourage them to stay here.” The state of the art, medical facility also trains nursing students from Conestoga College nursing program.

CMH is on the last stage of Phase 2, New Patient Wing, a 250,000 sq. ft. new wing that will increase the hospital by 40% and the number of beds from 142 to 197. The new wing includes a Emergency Department, eight amazing operating rooms, warm and comfortable birthing suites with a dedicated caesarean operating room, with additional capacity in case of needed life support design for twins. Also improved are the ICU, Medicine and Mental Health floors that have technology embedded for patient and practitioner safety. Hand washing stations are prevalent throughout the new facility, as disease control redundancies are designed in airflow control, which is also used as an invisible barrier to the spread of germs.

Once completed, the Phase 3 Legacy Redevelopment will begin, which entails a 150,000 square foot renovation to the original building, adding 100 beds, surgery facilities, rehab Diagnostic Imaging and a laboratory.
One hundred businesses are being sought to contribute $50,000 each, to help with the public campaign. The amount can be paid over a five-year pledge period.
