Four shortlisted for Ontario hospital project

EllisDon Caital and Walsh Canada are among those selected for the next phase of the Mt Sinai Hospital redevelopment.

Infrastructure Ontario has selected four companies to participate in the next stage of the procurement process for the redevelopment of Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

The four companies that will have the chance to respond to the Request for Proposals (RFP) expected to be issued in the spring of 2016, are Bondfield Construction, EllisDon Capital, PCL Constructors Canada and Walsh Canada, the province’s Crown corporation that delivers public infrastructure through public-private partnerships (PPPs; P3s) said in a statement.

The project, which is the third phase of the hospital’s broader redevelopment already completed, involves a large-scale renovation of several facilities such as doubling the size of the emergency department to accommodate an estimated 80,000 patients annually. It will also see the construction of 18 new operating rooms, a capacity increase at the intensive care and inpatient units and the redevelopment of a full-service, in-house medical devices reprocessing department.

Last year, the hospital opened its new neonatal intensive care, labour and delivery, and antenatal units.

The Mount Sinai Hospital, part of Sinai Health Systems, will continue to be publicly owned, controlled and accountable, IO said in the statement. Other facilities comprising the Sinai Health Systems are Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute and Circle of Care.
