Brampton – William Osler Health System recently hosted a delegation from Qatar, Arabia to tour the state-of-the-art Brampton Civic Hospital.

The delegation, from Hamad Medical City (HMC) -- the premier non-profit healthcare provider in Qatar, travelled more than 10,000 km to see first-hand the overall design, equipment and technology used at Brampton Civic. HMC is developing plans for a 2.2 million square foot expansion of their health system.

Of particular interest to the delegation was the hospital’s robotic medication system; equipment features for remote monitoring in patient care areas, and range of equipment in our operating theatres.

Brampton Civic opened with many firsts in medical technology which are still considered state-of-the-art today. Some of these include: 

-  installation of the first wireless handheld device system in North America that allows nurses to respond to patient calls at all times and from anywhere in the facility; 
-  Canada’s first installation of ‘TOMCAT”-- a highly integrated cardiovascular diagnostic and information system; 
-  the largest robotic installation of an auto-dispensing system for solid-based medications in Canada; 
-  self-service registration kiosks in Ontario which save 95% of registration time.
