Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre Perinatology and Gynaecology Program Review

Submitted By Dr. Jack Kitts, President & CEO The Ottawa Hospital


The Minister of Health and Long-Term Care commissioned this review of Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Science Centre (SWCHSC) Perinatalogy and Gynaecology (P&G) Program to determine the most appropriate site and management model for the Program. SWCHSC is proposing to move the P&G Program from the Women's College Campus to the Bayview Campus at a capital cost of $135M. Current plans indicate that total capital redevelopment projects at the Bayview Campus will exceed $300M and require up to $100M to support the local share. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) is concerned about the quality of services and the affordability of this project.

The Review Team, led by Dr. Jack Kitts, completed a clinical review and a capital review. The clinical review included examination of patient care, education and research. The capital review included examination of capital plans and financing. The methodology included a comprehensive review of relevant documentation, extensive stakeholder consultation and detailed analysis of capital and financial information. The findings from the clinical review directed the capital review.

This report was produced by an independent third party, and was submitted to the Minister of Health and Long-Tem Care on August 18, 2005 for his review.
