Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and William Osler Health System have released a request for proposals to the three teams shortlisted to design, build, finance and maintain the new Etobicoke General Hospital Phase 1 Patient Tower Project.

A request for qualifications process that began in October 2014 shortlisted the top three teams with the development, design, construction, financial and facilities management capacity to undertake a project of this size and complexity.

The teams invited to bid are EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare, Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership and Plenary Health.

The Phase 1 Patient Tower project, involving the construction of a new four-storey wing, will add approximately 250,000 sq, ft,of space to the existing facility and house the services most urgently needed by the Etobicokecommunity. Project features include:

  • a larger, state-of-the-art emergency department to better meet the community’s need for high-quality emergency care
  • an ICU/CCU nearly four times larger than the current space
  • larger patient rooms filled with natural light that provide privacy and space to accommodate family members
  • a maternal newborn unit with birthing suites and a specialized Level II nursery for patients with non-life-threatening complications
  • an ambulatory procedures unit featuring procedure/operating rooms, pre- and post-op preparation and recovery areas and dedicated clinic spaces, including a respiratory clinic

The Phase 1 Patient Tower Project will focus on sustainable design and construction with the goal of achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification.

Once submissions to the request for proposals are received and evaluated, the successful project team is expected to be selected and announced in spring/summer 2016. Construction is expected to begin shortly after.


  1. The 401 sees well over 400,000 vehicles on its bisseut segment (Highway 400 to Weston Road.) There is no way that this is caused by just under 60,000 people commuting to Mississauga, even assuming they all drove on the 401 through that point. The traffic volume on the 401 is largely caused by an absence of a highway grid that can be found in similarly-sized cities such as Montreal or Detroit, which isn’t a bad thing. Brampton commuters have no use for an LRT on Eglinton, and the only way to justify a grade-separated LRT from Toronto would be once again to assume that every single commuter from Toronto would use it, which is untrue.
