Infrastructure Ontario announced that EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare (EDIH) has been selected as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance and maintain the new South Niagara Hospital project.
Infrastructure Ontario and Niagara Health selected EDIH after extensive evaluations following an open, fair and competitive request for proposals process that began in October 2021. The EDIH team includes:
- Applicant Leads: EllisDon Capital Inc. & Plenary Americas LP
- Design Team: Parkin Architects Ltd. & Adamson Associates Architects
- Construction Team: EllisDon Corporation
- Financial Advisor: EllisDon Capital Inc.
Infrastructure Ontario and Niagara Health will now work to finalize contract details with EDIH. The project is expected to reach financial close in early 2023, which will mean that relevant contracts have been signed and a financing rate has been set. The contract cost will be announced publicly following financial close and construction is scheduled to begin shortly thereafter.
The new South Niagara Hospital will be an integral part of Niagara Health’s connected healthcare system. The South Niagara Hospital will be located at the intersection of Biggar Road and Montrose Road in Niagara Falls, Ontario, just off the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW). The new South Niagara Hospital project will centralize services from existing facilities, making it easier for residents to access the care they need at one location, provide an overall better experience, and enable communities to be healthier. Niagara Health’s new site is being planned with a seniors’ focus embedded into all aspects of the patient experience.
