DBFM (Design Build Finance Maintain)
St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton
The West 5th Campus is a new hospital which will support state of the art facilities for people, alongside their families, coping with mental illness and/or addiction. The outdoor spaces are designed to provide a variety of landscapes specific to the needs of patients from the programs of schizophrenia, mood disorders, forensic and geriatric psychiatry.
The fifty-acre site sits atop the environmentally sensitive Niagara Escarpment. Preservation of the existing natural landscape, including mature groves of trees, was key to the overall design. Outdoor areas for therapeutic and recreational use are connected through trails and continuous walking loops.
