TORONTO, Nov. 8, 2016 /CNW/ - The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) is proud to announce that the New Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital is the Gold Award recipient in the Infrastructure category of the 2016 National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships (P3s).
The New Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital replaces a legacy hospital. It has the capacity for 457 inpatient beds and additional space to accommodate up to 602 beds in the future.
This DBFM construction had a total project cost of $ 2 billion with the Value for Money demonstrating an estimated cost savings of $383.1 million. The partnership set a new standard for hospital construction and design in Canada, combining innovative architecture and the latest technology to deliver high-quality, efficient, patient- and family-centered healthcare.
The Awards Panel took particular note of how the new hospital is expected to act as a core economic stimulant and centre for medical excellence as an "anchored tenant" for the developing north Oakville region. Panelists were particularly impressed with the design and technology innovations in addition to the community input that contributed to the success of the project.
The CCPPP National Awards will be presented on Monday, November 14th, 2016 at the 24th Annual CCPPP National Conference – INNOVATING OUR FUTURE at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto.
"We are extremely proud of the new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and honoured by this award. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those who were involved. The partnership that came together to build the new OTMH has set a new standard for hospital construction and design in Canada, combining innovative architecture and the latest in technology to deliver high quality patient and family-centred care."
