95 days until construction is complete!

Posted Aug 22nd, 2012

Can you believe it – we have surpassed the 100 day milestone to receiving the keys to our new hospital!

(Insert applause here!)

It won’t be long until we welcome a new era of health-care delivery, enabling us to provide one million square feet of care in a state-of-the-art, patient-centred environment.

Attention all staff moving to the new site!

Our next Clean Sweep is happening on September 12! More details to follow next week!

For any questions in advance, please contact Marilyn Bellows or Kevin Traynor.

Countdown to turning the building into a hospital 

With 95 days left in the construction schedule, and 213 days until the New St. Catharines Site opens, the building is looking more like a hospital with each day that passes.
On budget, on schedule and over 95% complete, the design of this world-class facility took the strengths of local knowledge from our clinicians and global expertise of our architects to create a building that is focused on the patient experience.


Although the exterior of the structure looks complete, it is still just a building; construction will be completed on November 26, 2012. The period between then and clinical move day on March 24, 2013 will be used to train and orient staff to the site and also welcome community members to tour their new hospital before we open to provide patient care.

Please join us in achieving the goal of providing one million square feet of care
