Exciting Milestones in Etobicoke General Renovation and Expansion

In March, Osler and Infrastructure Ontario announced the three teams that have been short-listed as potential candidates to design, build, finance and maintain the hospital’s new four-storey wing.

Each team will be invited to respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP) that is expected to be issued later this month. The teams include a developer, design/builder, finance group, and a facility maintenance provider. The short-listed teams are:

  • EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare

  • Etobicoke Healthcare Partnership

  • Plenary Health

Construction on the new four-story wing is expected to start in Spring 2016. To prepare the 42-year old building and systems for the new addition, Osler will soon be starting its Early Works projects. This includes replacing existing chillers, upgrading existing air handling units, providing integrated building systems connections for the new addition, and upgrading the western hydro lands parking areas to create more parking spaces, improve traffic flow and enhance safety.

Osler is also in process of planning for the construction of a new Ancillary Services Building (ASB) on the site of the Etobicoke General Hospital. An RFP to qualified teams went out in mid-March and construction is expected to begin this summer. This building will house a number of outpatient programs/services and also allow Osler to foster new partnerships with other complementary organizations for innovation and education.
