Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Trillium Health Partners (THP) have awarded a fixed-priced contract of $1.3 billion to EllisDon Corporation to build and finance the redevelopment project of The Future Home of The Gilgan Family Queensway Health Centre.

EllisDon was prequalified in May 2022 to continue in the procurement process. Selection criteria included the required construction experience and financial capacity to deliver a project of this size and complexity. The procurement process was overseen by a third-party fairness advisor.

The THP- The Gilgan Family Queensway Health Centre project is No. 64 on ReNew Canada’s 2024 Top100 Projects report.

“Trillium Health Partners is proud to partner with Infrastructure Ontario and EllisDon Corporation on this historic project that will serve our community for generations to come. Once completed, The Gilgan Family Queensway Health Centre will have space for over 350 beds, allowing us to increase our hospital’s capacity to provide quality health care from Milton to Toronto. This milestone brings us one step closer to more beds, shorter wait times, and greater specialization closer to home,” said Karli Farrow, president and CEO, Trillium Health Partners.

“Infrastructure Ontario is proud to be collaborating with Trillium Health Partners and EllisDon to deliver this essential piece of healthcare infrastructure. Existing hospital operations will continue in their entirety while we undertake this work, and once fully operational, this new facility will help support the delivery of high-quality care to help meet the growing demand for health care services in Etobicoke, Peel Region and the surrounding communities,” said Michael Lindsay, president & CEO, Infrastructure Ontario.
