Infrastructure Ontario and Halton Healthcare Services Select Plenary Health as the Preferred Proponent to Design, Build, Finance and Maintain the Milton District Hospital Expansion Project
Jan 20 15
Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Halton Healthcare Services (HHS) have selected Plenary Health as the preferred proponent to design, build, finance and maintain the Milton District Hospital expansion project. The selection of Plenary Health is the result of extensive evaluations following an open, fair and competitive request-for-proposals process that began in April 2014. The Plenary Health team includes: Developer: Plenary Group (Canada) Ltd.; Constructor: PCL Constructors Canada Inc.; Architect: B+H Architects, RTKL Associates; Financial Advisor: RBC Capital Markets; and Facility Manager: Johnson Controls Canada LP. The Milton District Hospital expansion project will add 330,000 square feet of space to the existing 125,000-square-foot hospital. Designed to address the needs of all users, including seniors, children, individuals with visual or cognitive impairments and those using wheelchairs and other mobility aids, the project will focus on meeting the care needs of those living in Milton, the fastest-growing community in Canada. These services include: expansion of emergency, surgical services, medical/surgical inpatient units, critical care, maternal newborn and diagnostic imaging and support services; overall capacity increase from 63 to 129 inpatient beds; 80% single-patient rooms for improved infection prevention and control and to provide increased patient privacy and a quieter healing environment; addition of the hospital's first Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine; and a Level 2A Special Care Nursery with capacity for eight bassinettes in the Maternal Newborn Unit. The expansion project will target the Canada Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) rating system, with a goal of achieving LEED Silver certification. LEED buildings focus on healthy indoor environments, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and efficient use of energy, water and other resources. IO and HHS will now work to finalize contract details with Plenary Health. The project is expected to reach commercial close and financial close in spring 2015, which will mean that relevant contracts have been signed and a financing rate has been set. The contract cost will be announced publicly following financial close and construction is scheduled to begin shortly thereafter. IO and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with HHS to redevelop Milton District Hospital, which will remain publicly owned, controlled and accountable.
