CAMH’s Emer­gency Depart­ment is Unveiled

November 28, 2014


The unveil­ing of CAMH’s revi­tal­ized psychi­atric emer­gency depart­ment met a much antic­i­pated and posi­tive recep­tion earlier this month. Entro’s role involved the design of the department’s grand entrance.

As a leader in mental health care, CAMH’s 24/7 psychi­atric emer­gency depart­ment at 250 College St. responds to the grow­ing need for special­ized care in Toronto and Ontario. The department’s revi­tal­iza­tion is attrib­uted largely to the generos­ity of Gerald Sheff & Shanitha Kachan, who gave gift of $2.5M to the project. Our design for the grand entrance pays homage to Sheff & Kachan. The donor’s names are set in stain­less steel letters above the depart­ment iden­ti­fier and contrasted with a vibrant purple. The purple wall not only reflects the CAMH brand, but also the vibrancy and passion that form the core of the orga­ni­za­tion.
