The Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute at St. Michael’s Hospital is one of more than 135 sites participating in this year’s Doors Open Toronto on Sunday May 27.
Comprised of the Keenan Research Centre and the Li Ka Shing International Healthcare Education Centre, the Knowledge Institute is one of the first buildings in the world specifically designed to bring together researchers, educators and clinicians to brainstorm ideas across professions and to take best practices and research discoveries to patient bedsides faster.
The building boasts several architectural highlights including an elegant wishbone staircase and a circular glass bridge connecting the Knowledge Institute to the main hospital building.
Doors Open will give visitors the opportunity to tour the building, view art and photo exhibits, and learn more about the cutting edge research and education taking place in this unique facility.
