The provincial government has announced it will spend as much as $358 million to redevelop and expand the Etobicoke General Hospital.
The project includes four new storeys and 250,000 sq. ft. of new space including:
• A large state-of-the-art emergency department;
• A new intensive care unit/ critical care unit that is nearly four times larger than the current space;
• A new maternal newborn unit with birthing suites and a specialized nursery;
• A new ambulatory procedures unit featuring both procedure and operating rooms, patient preparation and recovery areas, and dedicated clinic spaces, including a new respiratory clinic; and
• Larger patient rooms filled with natural light that provide privacy and space to accommodate patient’s family members.
Earlier this year, Infrastructure Ontario (IO) announced that it has selected Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance and maintain the Phase I Tower project.
Partnership members include: Developer, Axium Infrastructure Canada and DIF Infra 4 Canada Ltd.; constructor, Walsh Canada; architect, HDR Architecture Associates Inc.; financial advisor, Brookfield Securities LP and facility manager, Cofely Services Inc.
