WEYBURN, SASK. – Two teams have been selected to move ahead to the next stage of the competitive selection process to build Saskatchewan’s new Weyburn General Hospital.
The new hospital will include 25 acute care beds and a 10-bed mental health in-patient unit transferred from Tatagwa View. It will also include an EMS garage and an adjacent heliport.
Two teams, PCL Construction Management Inc. and Wright Construction Western Inc., responded to the province’s Request for Qualifications, which closed March 3. After evaluating the responses, both teams were invited to move forward to the Request for Proposal stage.
“We are very pleased to have two qualified Saskatchewan companies in the running to bring us closer to construction of the new Weyburn General Hospital,” said MLA Dustin Duncan in a statement. “We are eager to see the building take shape and look forward to the facility’s opening in the future.”
The new hospital will be built on the north side of 5th Avenue North between Hamilton Street and 5th Street at 275 – 5th Avenue NW.
The RFP will close in September. Construction of the new hospital is expected to start later this year with completion targeted for late 2024.
The project is being delivered using a design-build, two-stage procurement model.
The province stated the full cost of the facility will be determined through the competitive process.
