Tips For Staying Near Women's College Hospital

Location
Located on a quiet side street in downtown Toronto, Women's College Hospital is an independent hospital focusing on providing care specifically to women and their families with special departments for prenatal and postnatal care, as well as sexual health and assault care. 

Their new facility, located next door to the old building, has recently opened (in May 2013) and focuses on providing care that keeps people out of hospitals. 

They provide services out of five different locations. Aside from the main hospital building, they also operate a family clinic, foot clinic and lab next door at 77 Grenville St, the Bay Centre for Birth Control and the Women's College Research Institute at 790 Bay Street, and the Brief Psychotherapy Centre for Women at 2 Carlton Street.

Information for patients and visitors is easily accessed on their website.

Parking is available beneath the new building for $3 per half hour with no daily maximum, or in a number of other parking lots starting at $4 for every half hour. More parking information and prices can be found on their website.
