St. Joseph’s Health Centre’s newly renovated and transformed meeting and education spaces in the Learning and Innovation Centre are now open.
Thanks to the support of generous donors, the meeting spaces formerly named Education Centre A and B, the Small Boardroom and the Large Boardroom, and the small room across the hall, have all been renovated to improve meeting and learning experiences.
The spaces have new and enhanced technology features, flexible furnishings to accommodate various meeting and classroom purposes, black-out blinds, acoustic walls to reduce sound travel, and new interior finishes. For the first time, St. Joseph’s has a meeting space that can accommodate up to 140 people.
The following four rooms are the main features of the new Learning and Innovation Centre and are named in honour of the leading supporters. In the New Year, the St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation will host a special event to recognize and celebrate the donors who helped make the new Learning and Innovation Centre possible. At that time, the donor names will be added to the new room names.
