Stevenson Memorial Hospital Releases New Hospital Renderings
[New Tecumseth, ON – June 19, 2023] Stevenson Memorial Hospital (SMH) is thrilled to share new renderings of the hospital, which showcase what the exterior of the hospital will look like once the redevelopment is complete. Construction is slated to take place in 2025 with the expansion estimated to be complete in 2028.
Created by Kasian Architecture, the primary design consultants for the redevelopment project, the design features significant use of natural light, modern features, enhanced parking and a dedicated entrance for the Emergency Department, which will triple in size. Design features are inspired by local history, landscape, traditions and culture.
The renderings are part of the hospital’s Stage 2.1 Block Schematics proposal to the Ministry of Health which will be submitted at the end of June. The Ministry has updated the capital planning process to include nine steps within three sections, with construction beginning in the third section.
“This is an exciting milestone to share as we progress further along in the redevelopment planning stages and soon transition to early works projects in preparation for construction,” says Jody Levac, President and CEO, SMH. “These new images give the community a clear view of what we have been working so hard towards and what the community will have access to in the coming years.”
At 152,000 square-feet, the newly designed wrap-around expansion will triple the square footage of the hospital and will include a complete redesign of the hospital’s clinical areas. These include:
- Emergency Department
- Medical/Surgical (inpatient)
- Diagnostic Imaging
- Surgical Suite
- Birthing Unit
- Medical Device Reprocessing
“Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation is delighted with the new rendering images of the redevelopment for Stevenson Memorial Hospital, created by Kasian Architecture. These visuals showcase our commitment to creating a modern, patient-centered healthcare facility that will continue to serve our community with excellence and innovation,” stated Mary Thomas, CEO of Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF) launched the $43 million Because of you, we can Campaign in 2019 to support raising funds for the community share of the redevelopment, as required by the Ministry of Health. The Campaign also includes raising funds needed to support critical equipment and technology upgrades.

It is critical that the community supports the project in order for the redevelopment of the hospital take place.
