You can now get a glimpse behind the fence of the new South Niagara Hospital site. The live feed camera for the 1.3-million-square-foot-hospital construction project is now broadcasting live on Niagara Health’s website.
With a new image updated every five minutes and a featured time-lapse video setting, you can now watch construction of the new hospital live from your desktop or mobile device. From the excavation phase, right through to the installation of the final beam and beyond, you can watch the 12-storey state-of-the-art hospital come to life in real time.
“It’s exciting to watch construction as it happens on the new South Niagara Hospital. This small glimpse into the construction process gives you a deeper appreciation for the amount of work that goes into building a structure of this size, the complexities of the process and the people who are working on this project every day,” said Angela Zangari, Executive Vice-President, Finance, Redevelopment and Facilities, and Chief Financial Officer at Niagara Health.
The live feed camera is available to watch here:
Niagara Health has also launched a project newsletter to keep the community informed about the South Niagara Hospital project. This quarterly digital publication will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the design process and construction phase. The first issue debuted this week, and can be found here: https://www.niagarahealth.on.ca/site/south-niagara-newsletter
Located at the corner of Montrose and Biggar roads in Niagara Falls, the South Niagara Hospital will hold 469 single patient bedrooms, eight operating suites, 45 hemodialysis stations and two MRI machines. It will offer a full scope of hospital services including emergency, critical care, diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical services. It will also feature Centres of Excellence in complex care, wellness in aging and stroke to meet the needs of Niagara’s aging demographic.
Niagara Health hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for the hospital in July, and excavation began shortly after. The hospital will take approximately five years to build, with opening planned for summer 2028.
