What is St. Michael’s 3.0?
In January 2015, St. Michael’s embarked on a major redevelopment project to transform patient care at our hospital. Dubbed St. Michael’s 3.0, this project includes a new patient care tower at the corner of Queen and Victoria streets, a renovated Emergency Department, and significant upgrades to improve the existing hospital space.
