Hôpital Montfort and Infrastructure Ontario have announced that the Orléans Health Hub project has reached Substantial Completion. EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare was the winning bidder on this $59.7 million build-finance contract.
The Orléans Health Hub project involved the construction of a new facility in Orléans, Ontario. The 96,000 square foot facility brings together complementary services from the following health and community service partner organizations:
- Champlain LHIN
- Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO)
- Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre (EORC)
- Geriatric Psychiatry Community Services of Ottawa (GPCSO)
- Hôpital Montfort
- Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa
The hub will respond to client needs within a comprehensive service delivery model of care. The project is the first of its kind in Ontario, and is expected to drive community-based health care thinking across the province.
Services of the healthcare hub include the following:
- A needs-based ambulatory program
- Diagnostic imaging
- Geriatric support and wellness
- Mental health and wellness
- Active rehabilitation
The hub’s model of care translates to a more cost-effective use of resources and a better patient experience. Appointments will be coordinated as much as possible to minimize travelling, information will be sent back to primary care physicians, and clients consulting several specialists will have access to a coordinated care plan. The hub will also serve as a place for teaching and research.
A section of the site will be conveyed to the City of Ottawa to become a city park with native flowers and plants.
