Canada’s First Digital Hospital: Humber River Regional Hospital
Opening its doors on October 18th, 2015, Humber River Hospital is North American’s first fully digital hospital. Using only modern technologies, it will offer patients more efficient, safe, accurate and reliable care. Being just a short drive away from your Riverside Home community, you and your family are guaranteed to be nearby some of the most advanced and best care in the Greater Toronto Area.
With this hospital being the first of its kind, there are many benefits to the patients’ experience that allow doctors and nurses to focus more on caring and healing. For example, robots deliver patients non-narcotic drugs and other supplies; diagnostic images like MRI scans are charted immediately so specialists can review them in a timely manner and patients are able to check-in on self-serve kiosk stands that automate their records and are able to notify the relevant care teams that a patient is in the building.
Additionally, as well as being technologically advanced, Humber River Hospital is also taking the steps to become environmentally friendly. This hospital was built to adhere to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. These types of buildings focus on having a healthy indoor environment while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and making sure energy and water are being used efficiently.
With updated equipment and monitoring systems, an increased bed capacity from 549 to 656,and enhanced services like pediatric clinics and mental health programs, the Humber River Regional Hospital is the best place to get care. Having the first digital hospital right in Ontario by your Riverside Home community means that at this high-tech facility, patients’ needs are being put first by providing better access to high quality health care services that ensure a speedy recovery.
