Today, Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Trillium Health Partners (THP) have issued a request for proposals to build and finance the construction of the future home of The Gilgan Family Queensway Health Centre. This project, part of Trillium HealthWorks, will result in a modern dedicated centre for complex care and rehabilitation services, where patients can receive care and recover in a purpose-built environment.
Today, capacity challenges at THP put significant pressure on our ability to accommodate all patients who require rehab and complex care services. This expansion addresses this demand and growth in the community, and provides patients with the specialized care they need, closer to home. It includes:
· A modern nine-storey facility at 600,000 square feet, with space for over 350 beds.
· Increased capacity for specialized care, including complex continuing care and rehabilitation services.
· 100% private rooms.
· A new parking structure currently under construction (delivered separately).
EllisDon Corporation have been invited to bid on the project following a request for qualifications process that began in October 2021, having demonstrated necessary construction experience and financial capacity. Once their submission is received, IO and THP will evaluate their proposal while ensuring competitiveness throughout the process. If successful, IO and THP will move to financial close, anticipated in 2023.
Over the next 20 years, THP will experience more demand for its services than any other hospital in Ontario. Trillium HealthWorks, announced in December 2021, is the largest health care infrastructure renewal in Canadian history and will help meet the health care needs of the growing communities of Peel region and West Toronto areas. Trillium HealthWorks includes building The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital, and expanding The Future Home of The Gilgan Family Queensway Health Centre. THP’s plan to create a new kind of health care for a healthier community means advancing health across the hospital, the system and the community.
Karli Farrow, President and CEO, Trillium Health Partners said, “This milestone marks great progress in the Trillium HealthWorks infrastructure plan. It comes on the heels of receiving the City of Toronto’s continued support of zoning and permit approvals to ensure the timely delivery of urgently needed health infrastructure for the communities we serve. We have made great progress on this project, including the new parking structure under construction, and look forward to continuing our work together to build better health care for a healthier community.”
