Teams invited to respond to RFP for new hospital in Niagara

NIAGARA FALLS, ONT.—Infrastructure Ontario and Niagara Health have invited teams to respond to a request for proposals to design, build, finance and maintain the new South Niagara Hospital.

The province has invested over $19.5 million towards planning the new hospital in Niagara Falls since 2018.

Currently, Niagara Health operates five separate campuses and once completed, the new hospital will consolidate and expand acute care services, replacing outdated infrastructure with high tech facilities. In addition to emergency, critical care and surgical services, South Niagara Hospital will feature several centres of excellence specializing in stroke, complex care, geriatrics and geriatric psychiatry, and wellness in aging, indicates a release.

The new hospital is planned to have 469 beds, which is 156 more beds than the combined total number of beds at Niagara Health’s Port Colborne, Fort Erie and Niagara Falls campuses.

The government has also increased Niagara Health’s operating funding for the third straight year and it will receive over $8.4 million in additional operating funding starting this year, representing an increase of two per cent. The hospital will also receive over $1.4 million through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund to address urgent infrastructure renewal needs such as upgrades or replacements of roofs, windows, security systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.

The South Niagara Hospital is working towards becoming the first WELL certified health care facility in Canada.
