Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Quinte Health have awarded a contract to M. Sullivan & Son Limited to continue to deliver progress on the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Site Redevelopment Project.

Infrastructure Ontario and Quinte Health selected M. Sullivan & Son Limited following extensive evaluations through an open, fair and competitive procurement process that began in March 2023. The new hospital will be a leading, cutting-edge health care facility designed to meet the needs of the local community now and for years to come. The new facility will feature improved equipment and facilities including a 24-hour emergency department, helipad, surgical suite, dialysis unit and other specializations. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2024.

Infrastructure Ontario and Quinte Health are working with the Ministry of Health to deliver this Project.

“It’s the culmination of hard work, passion, generosity, and good old-fashioned tenacity that has brought us to this exciting milestone,” said Stacey Daub, president and CEO, Quinte Health.

“After more than a decade, we are moving forward with the build-phase of the new hospital, and I am filled with gratitude,” added Daub. “I am grateful to our steadfast project partners, to every donor across the community who has Backed the Build, and to Bay of Quinte MPP Todd Smith for his unwavering support.  I’m also thankful for the support and guidance of our Ministry and Infrastructure Ontario partners.”

“I am thrilled to see that construction is finally on the horizon to build the new Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital,” said Kinga Surma, Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure. “This contract award brings our government another step closer to delivering a world-class, state of the art healthcare facility for residents across Prince Edward County and beyond, ensuring they have access to the high-quality healthcare they deserve for generations to come.”
