Bridgepoint Health celebrates
‘Topping Off'

Structural completion of new building achieved

Toronto – Bridgepoint Health has achieved a major milestone in the construction of its new building, as the hospital completed its ‘Topping Off’ ceremony Wednesday, October 26, 2011.  

‘Topping off’ refers to the point during the construction process, when the building reaches its tallest vertical height. At Bridgepoint Health, this milestone was commemorated with a white steel girder, which was signed by the Hospital’s Board members, Bridgepoint staff, volunteers, patients and their families, project partners and special guests, and then hoisted to the top of the new building.  

“We are thrilled to have reached this important milestone in our construction,” says Marian Walsh, President and CEO of Bridgepoint Health. “In 18 months we will be moving into our new building, realizing a dream that started 10 years ago. This new facility will help us advance our groundbreaking work in research, education and care for people living with complex chronic illness – the biggest health challenge of the 21st century.”
