As plans for the construction of a new state-of-the-art acute care mega hospital moves forward, Windsor regional Hospital has started a new project to show Windsorites the possibilities.

Over the last ten years, 23 new replacement hospitals have been built or are currently underway in Ontario, and their new project allows you to take a virtual tour of some of the newest and most modern, state-of-the-art hospitals in Ontario and beyond.

Through a series of regularly updated videos and blogs, they plan to deliver the latest in healthcare infrastructure and innovation right to your computer screen.

Windsor Regional Hospital communications manager Allison Johnson is spearheading the project, and she will be tour guide of the future of hospital healthcare.

Humber River Hospital is the first stop on this journey. When it opens in 2015, the facility will be the first fully digital hospital in Canada and the most energy efficient in North America. Patients will be able to check their medical records, video conference with a nurse, adjust their room temperature and order meals, all from a bed side monitor.

In the coming weeks you will also be taken to to St. Catharines. The new hospital there can split into two distinct air handling zones to keep patients safe in the event of a pandemic. There will also be a stop in Sudbury, where a new hospital is opening up a whole new world of research and is attracting top specialists to the area.
