Request for Qualifications Issued for Three Hospital Redevelopment Projects

    Qualified Project Teams to be Short-listed

    TORONTO, Oct. 25 /CNW/ - A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was issued
today by the provincial government for project teams to build and finance the
expansion and redevelopment of three hospitals across Ontario - Lakeridge
Health Corporation, Royal Victoria Hospital and Windsor Regional Hospital.
    Once qualified project teams have been short-listed through the
evaluation process, they will be invited to submit project-specific Requests
for Proposals (RFP). The RFPs are expected to be issued in early to mid-2008.
    The Lakeridge Health Corporation's Oshawa hospital redevelopment project
will include new construction, renovations and bring into use the six
in-patient floors above the Durham Regional Cancer Centre.
    The Royal Victoria Hospital Phase I Expansion Project will nearly double
the size of the existing hospital and includes the addition of the
Simcoe-Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre.
    The Windsor Regional Hospital project includes construction of a new
building at the hospital's Western Campus, as well as renovations to update
existing facilities to accommodate rehabilitation and longer-term mental
health programs.
    Lakeridge Health's Oshawa project is expected to begin in winter 2009;
the Royal Victoria Hospital project is expected to begin in fall 2008; and the
Windsor Regional Hospital project is expected to begin in spring 2009.
    Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will
work with all three hospitals, 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.
    These projects are guided by principles outlined in the Province's
Building a Better Tomorrow framework, which ensures public ownership of core
assets such as hospitals, schools, and water and wastewater facilities.
