Short-listed teams invited to bid on St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton West
5th Campus

TORONTO, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - Infrastructure Ontario and St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton have released a request for proposals (RFP) to companies short-listed to design, build, finance and maintain a new campus at the West 5th Street site.

The new hospital will provide larger, more modern facilities to better support people and families struggling with mental illness and addiction. The campus will also provide diagnostic imaging and medical outpatient services, along with research and academic spaces.

The new West 5th Campus will target Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standards, which focus on healthy indoor environments, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and efficient use of energy, water and other resources.

    
    The three short-listed companies are:

    -   Carillion Health Solutions: Carillion, HOK Architects / Montgomery
        Sisam Architects, Vanbots and Carillion Services;
    -   Integrated Team Solutions: EllisDon Corporation, Fengate Capital
        Management Ltd., LPF Infrastructure Fund, Parkin Architects Limited /
        architects Tillmann Ruth Mocelin, EllisDon Construction, Johnson
        Controls and CIT Financial; and
    -   Plenary Health: Plenary Group / Innisfree, Cannon Design, PCL
        Construction, Honeywell Limited - Facilities Management and Meridiam.
    

"Our government is committed to giving Ontarians and their families the kind of high level healthcare that they expect and deserve. I'm pleased to see a big step in that direction for the people of Hamilton," said Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.

A request for qualifications issued in March 2009 short-listed the three teams with the development, design, construction, financial and facilities management capacity to undertake a project of this size and complexity.

"Today's announcement marks another step toward greater access to health care in Hamilton," said Sophia Aggelonitis, MPP for Hamilton Mountain. "By improving health care infrastructure, we are putting the foundation in place for modern service delivery in our local hospitals."

"This project provides a unique opportunity for innovation and transformation in the way mental healthcare is viewed and experienced," said Dr. Kevin Smith, President and CEO, St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton. "The new campus is a continuing example of St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton's strong tradition of integrating excellence in clinical care with innovative medical research and education."

Once submissions to the RFP are received and evaluated, the successful project team will be selected and announced in fall 2010. A copy of the RFP is available on Infrastructure Ontario's website.

Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton to develop the new hospital, which will remain publicly owned, publicly controlled and publicly accountable. Infrastructure Ontario is a Crown corporation dedicated to managing some of the province's larger and more complex infrastructure renewal projects - ensuring they are built on time and on budget.
