TORONTO, Canada – HDR, in association with the Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership, has been selected to design the new Etobicoke General Hospital Phase 1 Patient Tower Project in Ontario, Canada.
The Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership was selected by Infrastructure Ontario and William Osler Health System. The Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership team consists of:
Developer: Axium Infrastructure Canada and DIF Infra 4 Canada Ltd.
Constructor: Walsh Canada
Financial Advisor: Brookfield Securities LP
Facility Manager: Cofely Services Inc.
The $140-million project will add approximately 250,000 square feet in a four-story wing to meet the needs of its growing community. In addition to larger patient rooms with natural lighting, the new wing will include a larger state-of-the-art emergency department, an intensive care unit and critical care unit nearly four times larger than the current space, a maternal newborn unit with birthing suites and specialized nursery, cardiorespiratory and neurodiagnostic services and an ambulatory procedures unit. The project will focus on sustainable design and construction with the goal of achieving LEED Silver certification.
Construction is scheduled to begin immediately with an expected completion date of late 2018.
