Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Trillium Health Partners (THP) announced the start of the development phase for The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital, with the signing of the Development Phase Agreement (DPA) with ED+PCL Healthcare Partners.
The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital project is being delivered using a progressive public-private partnership (P3) approach, which will see ED+PCL Healthcare Partners work collaboratively with IO and THP under the DPA, as well as with the Ministry of Health. Once the Development Phase is complete, in approximately two years, it is expected that ED+PCL Healthcare Partners will enter into a fixed-price Project Agreement with THP to finalize design, build, finance and maintain the project, and proceed into the implementation phase for construction of the project.
“IO is pleased to be working with Trillium Health Partners and ED+PCL Healthcare Partners to deliver this project using a progressive P3 approach. This approach represents the continued evolution of the P3 model and will enable more opportunities to exchange ideas and share input during the project’s design phase, which will help to address the inherent complexities of delivering a healthcare facility of this size and scope. By working collaboratively to deliver this vital healthcare infrastructure, we will achieve the best outcome for the hospital and the greatest value for Ontario’s taxpayers,” said Michael Lindsay, CEO and President, Infrastructure Ontario.

“ED+PCL Healthcare Partners, as well as all of our consortium partners are proud and excited to enter into the Development Phase Agreement phase for The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital,” said Joey Comeau, EVP and COO EllisDon Capital. “We are committed to working collaboratively with our partners to deliver a hospital that is innovative and responsive to the evolving needs of the surrounding communities.
“On behalf of ED+PCL Healthcare Partners, we’re thrilled to advance a culture of collaboration under the progressive public-private partnership approach in pursuit of building Trillium Health Partners’ vision for the new Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital,” said Marc Pascoli, SVP and district manager, PCL Constructors Canada Inc. “We are passionate about building a better future in partnership with THP, Infrastructure Ontario, EllisDon and our expert health care design and construction consultants.”
The start of the Development Phase marks the next major milestone in the process towards building The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital.
The new hospital will include:
- New and expanded Emergency Department (ED) – creating one of the largest EDs in the province
- Surgical platform that provides flexibility to adapt to changing patient needs and new technologies, including an increase in the number of surgical operating rooms with specialized equipment and advanced imaging systems
- New advanced diagnostic imaging facilities
- New pharmacy and clinical laboratory
Early works on the project, including the construction of the new parking garage, began in summer 2021. Hospital construction is currently estimated to begin in 2025, subject to the builder’s construction schedule.
“The Trillium HealthWorks redevelopment projects are vital to ensuring we can deliver the health care this community needs and deserves for years to come. The Development Phase Agreement marks a major milestone in this journey. In close collaboration with ED+PCL Healthcare Partners and IO, THP will work to create an improved, more efficient, and more equitable health infrastructure for the community we serve,” said Karli Farrow, president and CEO, Trillium Health Partners.
