Southampton Hospital Renovation Updates

The new Emergency Room at our Southampton Hospital opened in early 2018, and work continues on the major renovation to the laboratory.  Background and updates on the project are posted below, along with an overall description of the work.

Project Highlights:

With over 17,000 visits, the ER at the Southampton Hospital is one of the busiest in Grey Bruce. The renovated ER and the laboratory will help staff manage the number of patients seen in the hospital every year.  The expanded departments will have more comfortable treatment space and provide better working conditions for our skilled staff and physicians.

The Southampton Hospital Lab and ER renovation project will include the following:

  • 9,904 square-foot new addition
  • 6,221 square-foot renovation
  • new electrical main distribution panel
  • 42 new parking spaces

The addition puts a new face on the hospital originally built in 1957, with additions in 1965 and 1978. 

By creating a new main entrance and separate emergency entrance from High Street, access is much improved over the previous configuration.

This is a significant project for this area, and the renovated hospital will be a major asset to residents and visitors.
