CORNER BROOK, N.L. — The government of Newfoundland and Labrador has announced that the Corner Brook Care Partnership consortium has been selected to design, build, finance and maintain a new long-term care facility to serve the Corner Brook area.
The new facility will include 120 long-term care beds as well as 15 palliative care beds and 10 rehabilitative care beds, noted a Nov. 6 media statement.
The Corner Brook Care Partnership team is led by Plenary Group and includes Montgomery Sisam Architects and two businesses, Marco Services as the builder, and G.J. Cahill as the service provider, from Newfoundland and Labrador.
Onsite activity will begin soon with the facility set to open in spring 2020, generating 380 person-years of employment and $43 million in GDP during that time, said the statement.
The value of the contract with Corner Brook Care Partnership is approximately $120 million.
The contract will cover a 30-year period.
"We are honoured to have been selected as the preferred proponent to deliver a long-awaited and much-needed long-term-care facility in the community of Corner Brook," said Brian Budden, president and CEO of Plenary Group, in the statement.
"We look forward to achieving commercial and financial close and beginning what we know will be a productive, long-term relationship with Newfoundland and Labrador."
