TORONTO, April 15, 2019 /CNW/ - The provincial government of Newfoundland and Labrador has selected Newfoundland and Labrador Healthcare Partners (NL Healthcare Partners) to design, build, finance and maintain the Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor Care Homes project in a public-private partnership.
The NL Healthcare team includes:

The project comprises two facilities, one in Gander and one in Grand Falls-Windsor, that will each provide 60 long-term care beds.

Addressing pressures on the long-term care system in the province, the project is focused on improving access to bed placement.
The project is expected to reach financial close in Q2 2019. The contract cost will be announced publicly following financial close.
"We are honored to be selected as the preferred consortium to deliver this critical healthcare infrastructure to Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor and the surrounding communities," said George Theodoropoulos, Managing Partner, Fengate. "We look forward to a long and productive partnership with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador to build, operate and maintain these long-term care facilities for the province and its citizens."
We are very proud to be given the opportunity to design and build this major project," said Lorin Robar, Pomerleau's Regional Director for the Atlantic provinces. "We also are pleased to partner once again with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador on a project that has such a great and positive impact on the area, its community and its economy."
Construction on both projects will begin in 2019 and is projected to generate more than 343 person-years of employment and $39 million in economic activity in the province. This initiative delivers on the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador`s commitment to strengthen the province's economic foundation and deliver better services and better outcomes for residents.
