TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Integrated Team Solutions ("ITS"), in partnership with Infrastructure Ontario and Providence Care, announced that the Providence Care Hospital Project successfully reached substantial completion on November 30. The new hospital replaces Providence Care's current St. Mary's of the Lake Hospital and Mental Health Services buildings. It will open with full operations and services to clients and patients in April 2017.
Located in Kingston, the new 622,000-square-foot Providence Care Hospital includes 270 private inpatient rooms, as well as modern therapy and clinic spaces for inpatients and outpatients. It is among the first hospitals in North America to fully integrate long-term mental health care with physical rehabilitation and complex care programs in the same facility.
Integrated Team Solutions, a consortium led by Fengate Capital Management Ltd. ("Fengate") and EllisDon Corporation ("EllisDon"), was awarded the contract by Infrastructure Ontario ("IO") and Providence Care to design, build, finance, and maintain the facilities of Providence Care Hospital in December 2013.
"Fengate is thrilled to be part of the team that delivered the new Providence Care Hospital," said Marco Di Carlantonio, Executive Director at Fengate. "This state-of-the-art facility provides the community with high quality patient care and enhances Fengate's robust portfolio of social infrastructure projects."
"Through extensive collaboration among all the teams involved we are set to deliver one of North America's first fully integrated hospitals. We are excited to have reached substantial completion on this project, bringing us one step closer to providing Kingston residents with the top-quality healthcare they need," said Jeff McKay, Sr. Project Manager at EllisDon.
Providence Care was designed and built to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification, incorporating environmentally-sustainable construction practices and energy-efficient design. It incorporates the latest technology throughout the building, enhancing patient, client and family experience as well as workplace efficiency.
"Infrastructure Ontario is extremely proud of the work we have achieved, and we congratulate our partners at Integrated Team Solutions, Providence Care and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care on delivering this Alternative Financing and Procurement project safely, effectively, on time and on budget," said Ehren Cory, Divisional President, Project Delivery at Infrastructure Ontario.
