It is early days for the new campus of The Ottawa Hospital, the ambitious health centre whose future home was so contentious for so long. But all parties have finally compromised on a site at the northeast corner of the Central Experimental Farm and the planning process is underway in earnest. So far, hospital brass are going about it properly – for a change.
This past week, the hospital held an open house to show the public concept drawings of the new buildings. These aren’t a final design, but an early “test-fit” to see how the site could be used in a way that would address its uneven terrain, serve future health needs effectively and complement both the nearby community and the abutting green space at the Farm, Arboretum and Dow’s lake, each cherished by Ottawans.http://ottawacitizen.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-hospitals-pitch-to-the-public-a-healthy-sign
