The request for proposals stage has closed for three companies to submit their bids to design, build, and finance the new patient care tower project at Michael Garron Hospital.

Based on a fair and open request for qualifications process that began in June 2016, the following companies were invited to submit formal proposals:

EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare (EDIH)

  • Design Build: EllisDon Design Build Inc.
  • Design Team: B+H Architects and Diamond Schmitt Architects
  • Financial Advisor: EllisDon Capital

PCL Partnership

  • Design Build: PCL Constructor Canada Inc.

  • Financial Advisor: TD Securities

Walsh Toronto East Health Partners

  • Design Build: Walsh Canada
  • Design Team: Perkins + Will and Cumulus Architects
  • Financial Advisor: Walsh Infrastructure Canada Ltd.

Over the next several months, Infrastructure Ontario and Michael Garron Hospital will evaluate the proposals and a successful proponent is expected to be announced in late 2017. Construction is expected to begin in early 2018.

The project involves the construction of a new eight-storey patient care tower and three-storey building connecting to the existing hospital at five levels, including the new main entrance. The project also includes the demolition of some existing wings and selected renovations to the existing hospital. Approximately 550,000 square feet of the hospital will be redeveloped, including:

  • Replacement of the oldest beds in the medical/surgical and rehabilitation units;
  • Replacement of the mental health inpatient units for adult and child/youth care;
  • Consolidation of ambulatory care and ambulatory procedures;
  • Creation of underground parking, a new main entrance and landscape area; and
  • Accommodation of other administrative and support services needed to support the clinical services.

The project also involves renovation of approximately 100,000 square feet of select areas within the existing hospital in addition to other infrastructure upgrades.

The redevelopment project will enable the delivery of efficient, accessible, high-quality patient care, while replacing some of the oldest spaces in the hospital.

The project is expected to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certification for design excellence and sustainability. The project is being delivered under IO’s Alternative Financing and Procurement model.
