Request for Qualifications Released for Brockville General Hospital Redevelopment Project


BROCKVILLE, ON, June 18, 2015 /CNW/ - Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Brockville General Hospital have issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) to build and finance the hospital's redevelopment project.

The project will consolidate programs and services offered on the Garden Street site to the Charles Street site. The project involves a combination of new construction and renovation, which will include:

  • - An expanded Acute Mental Health and Addictions Program
  • - Increased inpatient beds in the Complex Continuing Care, Palliative Care, and Rehabilitation departments
  • - Relocation of support facilities

The request for qualifications is the first step in the procurement process to select a team to build and finance the project. Submissions will be reviewed to pre-qualify project teams that have the necessary construction capability, experience and financial capacity to undertake a project of this size and complexity. Pre-qualified teams will then be invited to respond to a request for proposals, which is expected to be issued in early 2016.

IO and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Brockville General Hospital to redevelop the facility, which will be publicly owned, controlled and accountable.

Brockville General Hospital Reaches Key Milestone in Redevelopment Project



May 15, 2015 (Brockville, ON) – After 13 years of the planning process a major milestone has been reached for Brockville General Hospital. 

Hospital Board Chair, Neil T. Bhatt received a letter from the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care (MOHLTC) approving the Hospital to proceed to Stage 3 of the Redevelopment project. 

BGH is working closely with Infrastructure Ontario and the MOHLTC as we undertake design and planning documents.  Stage 3 is an exciting phase as we introduce planning documents and design concepts including architectural, structural, electrical, mechanical designs, exterior elements of parking, landscaping, and lighting.

Construction is estimated to begin in late 2016/early 2017.

Background

Since 2000, our community has been building on a vision of a single campus hospital to serve the needs of residents in Leeds Grenville.  In 2003, we completed an expansion to the Charles Street site.  In 2006, there was the transfer of services from St. Vincent de Paul’s to BGH.  And, by 2012, we saw the transfer of mental health services from The Royal to BGH and the relocation of the Elmgrove site to BGH in 2014.  This project will complete the vision by becoming a single campus organization.  

Services

The community can expect enhanced patient spaces including the latest hospital design, and environmentally friendly building components, within a five floor, 175,000 square foot addition.  The project will increase bed count from 71 to 93.  This includes an increase in Mental Health, Complex Continuing Care, Palliative Care, Rehabilitation and Restorative Care beds.  

Model Room

A model room from the Redevelopment Project will be available to the public during the Hospital’s Open House, on June 2 between 5-8pm.  Please join hospital leaders to learn more about this project and other hospital initiatives.
