There are comfortable and private spaces for visitors and an advanced operative birthing suite."

  • 20 private Labour, Birth, Recovery and Postpartum (LBRP) rooms, where women will journey from labour and delivery to postpartum recovery, all in the same comfortable room
  • 48 beds for neonatal intensive care which will provide around the clock care for 1,200 of Ontario's critically ill and premature infants
  • Three operative birthing rooms for high-risk, Caesarian section and multiple births
  • A 23 bed High Risk Antenatal Unit for moms-to-be experiencing pregnancy complications
  • Access to critical care expertise in the areas of heart, cancer and neurosciences, all of which are located at the Bayview campus
"The new facilities, designed with input from patients and families, will provide a state-of-the-art environment for our world-class Women & Babies team," says Dr. Barry McLellan, President and CEO of Sunnybrook.
