Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and William Osler Health System (Osler) have issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the new Peel Memorial Hospital Redevelopment project. The project will be delivered through IO’s Progressive Design-Build (Target Price) contract model.

The RFQ is the first step in the process to select a qualified team to deliver the project, which includes a multi-storey patient tower that will house new inpatient beds, expanded clinics, and Brampton’s second Emergency Department. IO and Osler will evaluate the RFQ submissions, to prequalify teams with the required design and construction experience to deliver a project of this size and complexity. Shortlisted teams will be invited to respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP), expected to be released in Fall 2024.

“With this milestone, we are another step closer to transforming Peel Memorial into Brampton’s new hospital and bringing greater access to the health care services this community needs most,” said Linda Franklin, board chair, William Osler Health System. “Together with our partners – the Ontario Government, Infrastructure Ontario, City of Brampton and the Osler Foundation, and with the significant support of the community – we are building a robust local health system and transforming health care in this area for generations to come.”

The new Peel Memorial Hospital will increase health care capacity in the community and address the significant need for more specialized care for patients requiring longer hospital stays before they can safely return home or to additional care in the community.

“Moving into the procurement stage brings us closer to a strong, accessible health system for our community’s future,” said Dr. Frank Martino, president and CEO, William Osler Health System. “The transformation of Peel Memorial into Brampton’s new hospital will bring specialized and expanded services that are vital for patients and their families. We look forward to working with our partners in the time ahead to help increase hospital and health care capacity to serve our growing community.”
