Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Quinte Health announced they have invited four companies to respond to a request for proposals (RFP) to deliver the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital site redevelopment project.
“This key milestone brings us another step closer to delivering the new Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital, a leading-edge and sustainable health care facility that will meet the current and future capacity needs of the local community. Infrastructure Ontario is pleased to be a part of building community health care in Prince Edward County, and this project is a great example of how P3 models can create partnerships that ultimately bring vital health care infrastructure to life,” said Michael Lindsay, President and CEO, Infrastructure Ontario.
The four companies were prequalified based on criteria identified in a request for qualifications process that began in March 2023. Selection criteria included the required construction experience applicable to this project, as well as the financial capacity to deliver a project of this size and complexity. The prequalified companies are:
- Ledcor Construction Limited
- M. Sullivan & Son Limited
- Pomerleau Inc.
- Quinte Care Partners
“As we mark this important advancement, I want to acknowledge the remarkable amount of effort and support it has taken to get us here,” said Stacey Daub, president and CEO, Quinte Health. “A project of this magnitude takes an extraordinary amount of work, vision, time, and perseverance. I am inspired by the many citizens and community leaders who championed this project from the outset and by the long history of collaboration and the unwavering, steadfast commitment shown by our partners – the PECMH Foundation, the Prince Edward County (PEC) Family Health Team, the Municipality of PEC, and the PECMH Auxiliary.”
The companies will now begin preparing proposals that detail how they will deliver the project. Once submissions are received, Infrastructure Ontario and Quinte Health will evaluate the proposals, select a preferred company and then negotiate a final contract. The successful company is expected to be announced in mid-2024. A fairness monitor will oversee the entire procurement process.
