Welcome Reception, December 2nd (Optional)


CCHF invites you to learn from the hospital leaders, industry partners and project experts, how technology innovations are being integrated and planned to improve care, quality, workflow, and safety in new and existing builds. The complexity and speed of evolving information technology, medical and non-medical innovations poses new challenges and opportunities in improving patient centred care. For hospital administrators, clinical leads and the experts planning, designing and constructing facilities this means new ways of collaborating, integrating services and programs, planning for the unplanned, and yet to be designed solutions, while managing budgets under pressure. Join us for a very informative day to learn about these cutting-edge technologies, approaches for integration and how they are transforming healthcare facilities.


1) Guest speaker, Dr. Ivar Mendez a pioneer of the first long distance telementoring neurosurgery, will be sharing his global experiences of clinical technology advancements, the future of technologies in providing care and their impact on designing hospitals.

2) Hospital leaders and technology innovators sharing case studies on information, communication and automation technologies (ICAT), the innovative responses in healthcare facility design to improve functional programs, workflow, and their care and efficiency.

3) Lean, Green. Digital. Following the conference, a tour of Humber River Hospital’s newly opened Wilson Site, highlighting key design and technology innovation features, including: smart bed technology, robotic technologies for certain surgical procedures, automated laboratory processing, automated guided vehicles that deliver medical supplies and bedside computer screens that allow patients to control their own environments.

At this event, the audience plays an important role in advancing the discussion and understanding. Our audience is comprised of healthcare leaders and multi-disciplinary experts that provide expertise to the healthcare facility sector. Please join us for our Toronto winter session!
