I’m thrilled to share that as of 7:30 p.m. last evening, our redevelopment project Request for Proposals went live on the government’s procurement website, followed by a press release that was issued at 9:00 a.m. this morning. The three bidders that were selected last summer now have our design documents and will begin preparing their proposals to build our new building.
A big thank you to everyone at MGH for your support and hard work in helping the organization achieve this significant milestone!
So what’s next for MGH?
Over the six months, we will be working closely with Infrastructure Ontario and attending over 100 bidder meetings to ensure each of our three bidders has the information they require. Many clinical and support key staff members will be asked to participate. Bidder proposals will be received in early August, followed by five months of evaluation with contracts being signed in January 2018. Construction will begin shortly thereafter.
The Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre will be the largest construction project in the history of our hospital. A cornerstone enabler to our mission; Create Health, Build Community.
If you’d like to learn more about Michael Garron Hospital’s redevelopment project and celebrate this exciting milestone, please join us next week. We’ll be hosting an Open House on F5 next Friday February 10th, 2017 from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. There will be prizes, treats & refreshments and all staff, physicians and volunteers are encouraged to attend.
