The Women's College Hospital will break ground for a new building starting in 2009. A new Ambulatory Care Centre will consolidate ambulatory services with a strong focus on surgery. Renovations are already underway in the current building to develop offices and clinics for surgeons under the direction of Surgeon-in-Chief John Semple. They currently run five operating rooms, with eight to be built in the new facility. Health Minister George Smitherman has designated the hospital as an "academic ambulatory surgery facility" for the LHINs. Surgery will be a major focus; the hospital's results will be used as benchmarks for the entire province.
