The Ottawa Hospital has plans to integrate research spaces into clinical areas as much as possible at our new campus. This design approach will create more opportunities for researchers and clinicians to collaborate and will increase patient access to clinical trials and groundbreaking new therapies that can lead to life-changing outcomes.

Having research spaces built into clinical areas will enhance the research culture at TOH and embed a minimum standard of research in all processes, strengthening our health-care practices and improving our ability to attract and retain innovative staff.
