Brantford Medical Centre
$7 Mil. CAD
This new $7 million dollar, state of the art medical centre near HWY 403 in Brantford, Ontario will provide a major advance in health care services for the entire surrounding region. Built in conjunction with Vicano Construction Ltd., the client Dr. Jaswinder Dhillon–headed up a group that began planning for a desperately needed–larger urgent care centre about 2 ½ years prior.
Vicano Construction Limited began building in March of 2009 with occupancy on February 1, 2010.The four-level building totals approximately 48,000 sq. ft. and house clinics and offices of medical practitioners from the area and those travelling in from other communities. Dr. Dhillon noted that the location of the centre was intended to make it easier for out of town physicians to practice in Brantford. “It’s much more convenient for physicians travelling in”, he said.
Each level is dedicated to specific areas of health care. The walkout ground level houses a physio therapy clinic, a chronic disease management clinic call “Prevention Plus”, and a cafeteria.The main level is devoted to urgent care, diagnostic services (X-ray, ultrasound and laboratory), a pharmacy and optometrist offices. The second level is dedicated to offices for family practice physicians and psychiatry. The top level is intended for future complementary expansion possibilities.
Dr. Dhillon estimates that total employment figures for the facility will be 120-140 when at fullcapacity. “We want to bring more doctors to the area and we believe that having a facility of this caliber will certainly help”.
