Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Trillium Health Partners to redevelop the Credit Valley Hospital site, which will remain publicly owned, publicly controlled and publicly accountable. Previously, Infrastructure Ontario worked with Credit Valley Hospital to deliver the Phase II Redevelopment project, which was completed on budget and ahead of schedule in March 2011.
Trillium Health Partners is one of the largest community-based acute care facilities in Canada. Comprised of Credit Valley Hospital, the Mississauga Hospital and the Queensway Health Centre, Trillium Health Partners serves the growing and diverse populations of Mississauga, West Toronto and surrounding communities. Trillium Health Partners is affiliated with the University of Toronto Mississauga and the Mississauga Academy of Medicine.
Infrastructure Ontario is a crown agency of the Province of Ontario that delivers large, complex infrastructure renewal projects on time and on budget. Over the last six years, the province has applied Infrastructure Ontario's alternative financing and procurement model to 83 major projects valued at approximately $38 billion, saving taxpayers an estimated $3 billion. Infrastructure Ontario also manages one of the largest real estate portfolios in Canada, provides municipalities and eligible public sector clients with financing to renew public infrastructure, and leverages its private-sector expertise to manage major commercial transactions on behalf of the province.
