Infrastructure Ontario announced that the request for proposals (RFP) stage has closed for The Ottawa Hospital – Civic Campus Redevelopment Project. The Ottawa Hospital’s new campus will be home to a state-of-the-art acute care academic hospital, that will support training of the next generation of health care workers and advance life-changing research.
The new hospital will be one of Canada’s largest and most modern teaching hospitals, that will include a trauma centre for Eastern Ontario, and will support The Ottawa Hospital’s (TOH’s) delivery of health care to the greater Ottawa and Eastern Ontario region, Western Quebec, and Nunavut. The new hospital will provide a full range of specialized services and programs, and outpatient clinics to treat the most complex injuries and illnesses.
Following a fair and open two-phase RFP process that began in November 2022, one prequalified company has responded by today’s deadline.
The project is being procured using a new progressive public-private partnership (P3) approach, which will involve both a Development Phase Agreement with the development partner and – upon the conclusion of the Development Phase – a design-build-finance-maintain P3 Project Agreement to implement the project.
Over the next few months, Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and TOH will evaluate the RFP submission and enter into a Development Phase Agreement with the new Development Partner. During this phase, IO, TOH, and the Development Partner will work together to further define and refine project requirements, design, pricing and risk parameters.
The Development Partner is expected to be announced in early 2024, and project construction is expected to begin following the Development Phase.
IO and TOH are working with the Ministry of Health to deliver this project.
