Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership has secured a $330M contract to design, build, finance and maintain the new Etobicoke General Hospital Phase 1 Patient Tower Project in Ontario, Canada.
The scope of the contract will include the construction of a new four-storey wing and will add about 23,225 sq m of space to the existing facility.
The project will feature an emergency department, an ICU/CCU about four times larger than the current space, a maternal newborn unit and an ambulatory procedures unit.
Designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certification, the Phase 1 Patient Tower Project is expected to create 300 jobs at the construction peak.
Infrastructure Ontario president and CEO Bert Clark said: "Infrastructure Ontario is proud to partner with William Osler Health System to deliver the Etobicoke General Hospital expansion — another great example of what can be achieved through public-private partnerships."
Construction work will commence immediately and is anticipated to be complete in late 2018.
Update: Construction company Walsh Canada has confirmed its involvement on the Phase 1 Patient Tower project. The company has achieved commercial and financial close on the development’s agreement with William Osler Health System and Infrastructure Ontario.
Craig Lesurf, vice president and business group leader for Walsh Canada, said: “This is a particularly significant win for Walsh as it reinforces our reputation as one of the top healthcare builders and P3 project Design‐Build partners in North America.
“We are excited to deliver this challenging project that will expand the delivery of healthcare options for the local communities served by William Osler Healthcare System.”
