Infrastructure Ontario and Quinte Health Care have issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for teams to deliver the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Site Redevelopment Project.

The RFQ is the first step in the process to select a team to deliver the project. Submissions will be reviewed to shortlist teams with the required construction experience applicable to this project, as well as the financial capacity to deliver a project of this size and complexity. Shortlisted teams will then be invited to respond to a Request for Proposals, which is expected to be released in the fall of 2023.

The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Site Redevelopment project is being delivered using a Design-Bid-Build model. The architect and engineers of record, under contract to Quinte Health Care, are completing the design documents. This RFQ is to select a contractor to deliver the project based on these designs.

The new Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital (PECMH) will be a leading-edge health care facility designed to meet the current and future capacity needs of the local community. The project includes the construction of a new hospital with improved equipment and facilities including a 24-hour emergency department, helipad, surgical suite, dialysis unit and other specializations.
