Hospital Demolition

Andy | Saturday, November 02, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

Women’s College Hospital building, completed in 1935, is currently being torn down on Grenville Street, Toronto. With the recently built first phase of the new Women’s College Hospital facility now completed to the east, this aging hospital structure on the western edge of the property is being cleared to make way for a future second phase of the hospital. There was concern whether the building could be saved or reincorporated into the new hospital, but the aging facility was considered no longer viable in an age where health care has become high tech,
and where programs are changing significantly.


  1. It is sometimes surprising at how quickly our society is moving in the technology area. Affects almost all aspects of life.

  2. Where have I heard that before, dam big nibler that

  3. I didn't know it was being torn down!
    Priestly sign is also up at the old Inn On The Lake which became a Sheraton four Points att Lake Shore and Windermere.

    1. This photo was taken at the end of August, so their is even less standing there now.

  4. Just think of how many people the newly completed hospital complex will serve.

  5. Watching a building being demolished is aways a sad experience (even if the demolition is justified) It just seems to look so vulnerable having its shell ripped apart.

  6. Sad but when the new buildings are totally finished it will be a big improvement.
